What do you enjoy about working at Frome Medical Practice?​

I enjoy being part of the Health Connections team, within an innovative Practice. I also enjoy being able to support our patients to make positive changes, leading on to healthier, happier lifestyles. 

What do you love doing when you are not at work?

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and running. In quieter times I like to read and practice yoga and meditation. 

Active Practice Champion

My name is Jo Fordham and I am one of the the Active Practice Champions.  I started my role as a Health Connector at Frome Medical Practice in 2015, promoted to Senior Health Connector in 2019.

I am passionate for exercise and healthy eating to be accessible for all. Since being at the practice I have run exercise sessions for patients and staff. This includes the Couch to 5k, Run, Walk and Talk and Escape pain, a self management and exercise programme for people who have osteoarthritis of the knee/hip.

As a Health Connector my role is to help people to make positive healthy lifestyle changes through working 1:1 or in groups.
