Whilst working as a health screening nurse for insurance companies, Sue regularly saw the early signs of cardiovascular disease and diabetes through the tests she performed on the clients. However, it was not in her remit to provide nutrition and lifestyle advice, and this inspired her to set up Pulse Health Screening.
Pulse Health Screening has now been operating for over 14 years and offers a wide range of health and wellbeing services from laboratory testing to bio-energetic screening.
Pulse Health Screening was founded by Sue Bedford, a Nutrition and Lifestyle practitioner with a passion for disease prevention and health promotion, who originally trained as a Registered Nurse.
Sue worked for over 30 years in a variety of fields of medicine within the NHS, Private Sector and in Primary Care. Over that time, Sue became interested in the effect that diet and lifestyle has on a range of chronic illnesses. She found it strange that nutrition is barely taught in Nursing and Medical Schools, yet it has such a large impact on the cause or prevention of ill health. This revelation led Sue to undertake a diploma course in Nutrition.
