Health and Wellbeing

From 1st April 2020, Thistle will offer a revised Health and Wellbeing service.

The current closure of our Centre of Wellbeing in Craigmillar has led us to redesign how we deliver our health and wellbeing support for people living with long term health conditions.

We know that it can be difficult to adjust to life with a long term condition, and that at the present time many people’s existing supports may not be available, making this even more challenging.

Changes to existing and ongoing support

Support offered by Thistle Health and Wellbeing

We provide remote self-management support, particularly for individuals who are struggling to manage their health condition in the current climate.

This support may include:

We also operate a waiting list for when online group-based supports are available. 


At the moment, we are only open to referrals from health or social care practitioners, for people who may benefit from short-term self-management support, via a telephone listening and lifestyle coaching service.

Please speak to any of your health or social care practitioners to arrange a referral. 

Your GP or health practitioner can refer you by emailing emma.hollands@thistle.org.uk or by calling 07552 277416.

In time, we hope to open to self-referrals.
