About Us

Our Thought Process

Through our innovative transdermal patches  we aim to bring back your energy levels and sense of wellbeing which can be caused by deficiency of B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Zinc and Magnesium.  The deficiency of any vitamins and minerals  can directly impact your energy level, consequences of which affect your sense of wellbeing and/or  lifestyle.

Many people find it difficult to take the daily requirement of  vitamins and minerals through diet and oral supplements.  Our expert team of AB Health and Wellness has come up with the idea  of the transdermal patches delivered through the skin that is easy and does not require taking lots of tablets in order to complete the recommended intake of all essential supplements.

Our Journey

Alongside our  innovative Vitamin Patches we provide training courses for those wishing to increase their knowledge on B12 Deficiency and Pernicious Anaemia. These courses are all accredited and they are run by us. We are  healthcare professionals, doctors and nurses. Our courses are interactive, engaging, face-to-face  and are both practical and theoretical, equipping you or your workforce with the skills, knowledge and competence needed to provide compassionate and high quality care.

In 2019 following a period of growth and change we rebranded as ab health group. This was to reflect the new company AB Health & Wellness and  specialising in B12, and the work that we are doing Internationally.


Annie Barr MBE

MBE MA BSc Hons RGN PGCert INP EPA Goldman Sachs Graduate

Annie left school  at 16 years with one GCSE. She decided to pursue a career in nursing and  then went to university aged 30! Gaining a BSc Hon’s and a masters degree.  Now with over 40 years experience in  the health service (NHS) and starting her own business, through personal experience of  friends, relatives and her own mum dying in 2018 from a B12 deficiency, Annie started to research and look at alternative ways of  taking/delivering vitamins.

It became clear that there was a long history of Pernicious Anaemia throughout the family. Motivated by this, the idea of transdermal vitamin patches was born. Within a few weeks of having the idea through many business contacts Annie commissioned and developed the patch and had the first pack in her hand within 4 weeks.  The patches were a great success with family and friends who felt an immediate improvement.

Alongside the Vitamin patches Annie has developed training courses to educate others in Vitamin deficiencies. These can be found on https://anniebarr.com and below on eventbrite.

In  June 2018 Annie was awarded the MBE for her services to international healthcare by the Queen at Buckingham Palace. This was and is a great honour.

Annie is the  author of the Royal College of General Practitioner, Advanced Nurse Practitioner Competencies which were published nationally. Annie was the RCGP board member for nursing in the North East and was the RCGP representative on the 5 year forward view for General Practice in 2018.

In Nov 2021 Annie  won an award for Most Inspiring Female Business Leader Global by the Chamber of Commerce. This is humbling and we are so proud of her sheer tenacity, courage and achievements.

Annie is passionate about health and wellness and works with colleagues throughout the UK in making a difference to client care.

In 2017, Annie was funded by Goldman Sachs to undertake their small business programme and graduated at Oxford University.
