McClelland Centre services

 

The McClelland Centre offers a range of services to staff, students and the wider community.

 

Nutritional Therapy Clinic

Nutritional Therapy is a complementary therapy that uses the Functional Medicine approach and evidence - based research to support clients with a range of factors including diet, nutrition, lifestyle and eating behaviours along with many other factors. This service adopts an approach where Nutritional Science is reviewed from a cellular level to establish possible root causes that may be linked to presenting symptoms.

In the clinic we will:

  • Personalise a nutrition and lifestyle programme for you
  • Assess and identify nutritional imbalances and help you rectify them
  • Work with you to support your body to maintain or improve health

The students are able to provide you with a friendly and confidential service. Students work to BANT professional practice standards and CNHC code of conduct ethics and performance and are fully supervised by qualified and registered nutritional therapists.

A minimum of two consultations will be needed

Appointment 1

This will last approximately one hour and thirty minutes during which time the student therapist will discuss your symptoms or concerns and will negotiate with your personalised nutritional recommendations for you to implement over the following few weeks.

Appointment 2

This will last approximately forty-five minutes to an hour during which time your health will be reviewed, and further recommendations may be suggested depending on your progress

To find out more about what happens at appointments please see our dedicated Nutritional Therapy pages.

If you are interested in an appointment please complete the contact sheet and return to nutritionaltherapyclinic@worc.ac.uk and you will be sent a comprehensive health questionnaire and a diet diary to complete. Once we have received this, a student therapist will contact you. The questionnaire is long as it provides us with your health details and therefore enables us to research your case and personalise your recommendations. Please give us as much information as you can. 

Appointments are currently available on Wednesdays and Fridays.

The HealthHub Clinic

The HealthHub clinic is a student-led clinic which offers a great value of Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy sessions to the public. Students are supervised by University of Worcester professionally qualified and registered staff.

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function following illness, injury or disability.

  • Tailored exercise programmes designed individually to address any specific issues identified in the assessment;
  • Manual therapy whereby the physiotherapist uses their hands to help relieve pain and stiffness, and to encourage better movement through massage, manipulation and facilitation.
  • Soft tissue techniques (massage) which is a great way to relax and a valuable tool to aid recovery and enhance activity.

The clinic offers physiotherapy assessment, treatment and exercise prescription for a variety of conditions, undertaken by supervised student physiotherapists including:

  • Back pain, sports injury, arthritis or other general musculoskeletal problems;
