Viavi:be launches specialist employee wellbeing services 

To support the launch, free breakfast or lunchtime talks for employees in their offices are being offered to help demonstrate the Viavi:be expertise.   

Viavi:be has launched a range of specialist employee wellbeing services in Oxford, some of the most advanced services of their kind in the UK. And to support the launch, free breakfast or lunchtime talks for employees in their offices are being offered to help demonstrate the Viavi:be expertise.   

A growing number of companies are investing in the wellbeing of their people, both because they feel a genuine responsibility towards their employees and also for tangible commercial reasons. This could be to support the recruitment and retention of talent by offering an employee benefit that will be hugely appreciated or to seek to improve their employees’ effectiveness and resilience in a challenging working environment. Every company will have its own drivers.  

Viavi:be’s employee wellbeing services are based on the very latest knowledge and science, adopt the latest technologies and evaluations and are delivered by highly trained practitioners. The services can be customised for a company’s specific needs, delivered on-site or off-site, and include:

·        Comprehensive lifestyle assessments

·        Specialist cutting-edge assessments and guidance in areas such as stress and resilience

·        A range of “masterclass” talks for groups of employees, with subjects such as: managing stress and building resilience; improving sleep; reducing fatigue and improving effectiveness; and nutrition for performance and health.

·        Special corporate membership rates at the ground-breaking new health gym in Summertown, supported by complimentary health checks and events to support the initiative.

Viavi:be has a great provenance in the area. The services have been created by clinicians who are world-leaders in proactive health management and have the support of the advanced clinical delivery and medical team of the Viavi Harley Street Centre. The Viavi:be founders are also all ex-senior healthcare executives from the likes of Nuffield Health and Bupa who have extensive experience and a deep understanding of operating employee wellbeing programmes.

Consultations with specialist clinical practitioners

Consultations with specialist clinical practitioners are now available at Viavi:be

Consultations are now available at Viavi:be with specialist functional medicine doctors to help address and better manage on-going lifestyle related and chronic health problems, or to provide deeper lifestyle insights and advice to optimise your health.  

The incidence of lifestyle and chronic disease is rising. Advances in medical knowledge and science enable us to now prevent, manage and even reverse such issues in a way not done previously. Issues such as obesity, autoimmune disease, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment and mental health problems can all be potentially addressed. And the deterioration associated with aging need not always be the case. The Viavi:be functional medicine doctors adopt the core principle of identifying and addressing the underlying root cause of problems rather than just focussing on symptomology. They recognise the biochemical individuality of each person, the integrated network of systems in the human body, the need to take a holistic view and understand the whole person, the emerging knowledge in areas such as gut bacterial diversity, nutritional deficiencies, toxins and hormonal imbalance, and the importance of our mind, often subconsciously, in the causes and resolution of health issues. By adopting this framework, along with cutting edge tests and investigations, they can help you address and better manage your on-going problems, help reduce your reliance on medication, or provide deeper lifestyle related insights and advice to help ensure that you are doing everything possible to optimise your health and wellbeing.

The Viavi:be functional medicine doctors are highly experienced general physicians who have further specialised in this field, typically along with precision, anti-aging and lifestyle medicine. 

Please note that these consultations are not replacing consultations you might have with your GP. The purpose is to help you understand, address and manage underlying problems traditionally addressed “top down” rather than “bottom up”. The focus is on addressing the underlying causes rather than offering medication prescriptions. If it was felt that medication was the correct approach, the practitioner will advise you where to get help or refer you back to your GP. 

Consultations can be delivered face to face at the Viavi:be centre or through a specially encrypted video link. Telephone follow-up and support can also be provided. An initial consultation with a doctor would typically be for one hour.


60mins £350 (Viavi:be members £300); 30mins £175 (Viavi:be members £150)

Please note that the cost of any tests or investigations would be in addition to these fees.

Masterclass in lifestyle medicine with Dr Sabine Donnai

Thursday 21st June at 1pm or 6:30pm at Viavi:be

Lifestyle Medicine is a new and exciting clinical field which aims to prevent, manage and even reverse lifestyle and chronic disease. Come along to hear Dr Sabine Donnai, founder, tell you more about the latest medical science and thinking in this field. Hear about how you can now can pinpoint the sort of interventions that are precisely right for you, not just the broad-brush generic information typically available. See how you are able to prioritise the lifestyle choices that have most relevance for you given the pressures on your time. And can lifestyle medicine really reduce the deterioration normally associated with ageing or even help prevent cognitive decline?

Dr Sabine Donnai, founder and Group Chief Executive, is a world authority and leading thinker in proactive health management. From her centre in Harley Street, she works closely with many UK and international clients to both optimise their health and resolve complex health issues. She also consults widely and frequently appears on TV and in the press.  It is her clinical philosophy that underpins the Viavi approach, built on her special interest in the emerging clinical fields of not just lifestyle medicine, but also precision and functional medicine, and anti-ageing. 

Dr Donnai will provide two talks on Thursday 21st, one at 1pm and one at 6.30pm, including an opportunity for an extended Q&A session. She will also be available between these times on a drop-in basis to talk to members about how lifestyle medicine can contribute to their individual needs. To book, call 01865 689 214. Please book early for the sessions as spaces as always are limited.
