How our clinic works

All clients will have an initial appointment and ongoing primary support from Louise Carder, but each of our programmes include ongoing health coaching with another member of our team, so that you feel fully supported with implementing dietary and supplemental programmes.
Recipes, guides, shopping tips and meal plans as well as other practical tools will all be shared. Regular review appointments with Louise are also included.

The aim of any programme is to facilitate action. In this case, the action you would like to see is a change in your symptoms and to re-balance your health.   The DO-IT system which we utilise in our clinic is designed to support you towards that goal and is a clinical tool to guide you through your journey with us. We operate a virtual clinic for those who are unable to regularly attend appointments in person. COVID-19 has meant all our appointments during lockdown have been undertaken online. From January 2021 in-person appointments can be booked in Lincoln or London. In-person appointments may be subject to specific guidelines, such as wearing a mask, so we recommend that you check with us prior to attending.

Phlebotomy

Louise is qualified to undertake adult blood draws and is a member of the National Association of Phlebotomists.

We offer a phlebotomy service to our own clients as well as to private patients of other UK Laboratories and Practitioners. Please notify us at the time of booking if your blood test requires any special preparation, or has to be done at a specific time; e.g morning draw in a fasted state.  Please also let us know if your sample requires centrifuging.  If the kit contains an ice pack, please freeze it and bring it with you to the appointment.  If you are unsure about any of these points please either ask your referring practitioner. If you are a client of Louise herself, we will notify you of any test preparation that may be required.  We accept no liability if a test cannot be undertaken because instructions have not been followed correctly by the client. Terms and conditions will need to be signed upon booking.
