Over 80,000 participants have completed it resulting in over 30 published peer-reviewed papers. It has proven effectiveness in improving blood pressure, cholesterol, insulin resistance, low mood, poor sleep and chronic stress.

Compass Lifestyle Medicine are offering you the chance to become a CHIP facilitator and to join us on the adventure of scaling a lifestyle medicine response to improve our nation’s health. We are excited that the first pilot of CHIP commissioned by the NHS is now recruiting at a GP surgery in Kent with other pilots under discussion.
