Liva Healthcare, the digital health platform designed to tackle chronic diseases, has appointed Thomas Cooke as clinical services manager in the UK. The latest appointment comes as Liva hits the six-month mark of the NHS Healthier You: Diabetes Prevention Program (NHS: DPP) digital stream.
Tom has a wealth of experience in lifestyle coaching and was previously the health and wellbeing program manager at AXA PPP Proactive Healthcare. Here he helped businesses implement solutions to inspire wellbeing and build a sustainable health culture.
Tom will be responsible for delivering the company’s digital healthcare offering and supporting Liva’s work with the NHS: DPP.

Liva is a digital health platform supported by a physical, personal health coach to help patients reach their personal lifestyle goals and prevent and roll back chronic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes. In 2017, Liva was chosen as one of five technology providers to pilot the digital stream of the NHS: DPP.
Simon Pickup, managing director at Liva Healthcare, comments on the appointment of Tom:
Tom has a deep desire to improve the lives of others. His significant experience in supporting employee wellbeing means he is the perfect candidate to oversee new program design and our health coaches as they help patients make healthy lifestyle changes. It’s an excellent time for Tom to join the team as we start to expand with new customers and reach the halfway point of the NHS: DPP digital pilot with patients showing fantastic results already. Tom will help Liva expand in the UK during the next vital period of growth for the organization. I look forward to working with Tom as we continue to on-board pre-diabetic patients to our program, helping people prevent and reverse chronic lifestyle diseases”
