The Importance of Knowing Where You Have Been, Where You Are and Where You Are Going…

Lydia Hughes

Lydia trained in Business Studies and IT within a large corporate organisation from 1997 to 2001. Although initially finding it interesting to be involved in the intricacies of running a successful business, she soon found it to be very unrewarding, wanting instead to work in an environment where she could, in some capacity, make a discernible difference to a person’s life.  In 2001 she left the corporate world and started working for the NHS as a Medical Secretary in Bournemouth Hospital, and was promoted to X-Ray Office Manager in 2002.

In 2005 she left to raise her family, although continued to provide secretarial and book-keeping services from home. She returned to the NHS providing Urgent Care administrative support in 2012, alongside the running of her busy family home life.

Lydia has always been interested in keeping herself fit, understanding the importance of a healthy diet and regular exercise, and so in 2016 she completed an ‘Advanced Sports & Exercise Nutritional Advisor’ Professional Diploma in order to expand her knowledge in the Sports Nutrition Field.  In 2019 Lydia expanded her skills further by gaining an OCN Level Three Certificate in Phlebotomy.

She has now dedicated her time to managing the daily activities of our clinic, constantly working on improving and expanding our services so that we continue to offer our patients unrivalled, gold standard care.
