How can NHS Sport and Physical Activity can help you and others?
The initiative is an important demonstration of how all staff, both clinical and non-clinical, can lead by example in adopting a new healthier and more active lifestyle. In doing so they will create a positive influence on others around them, especially patients.
By taking part in the “NHS Sport and Physical Activity” programme, organisations can offer their staff a welcome break from everyday pressures of work life. It provides the opportunity for larger organisations to reinforce a sense of community by encouraging social and teamwork skills. This can have a very positive benefit in the workplace.
We have already established a Walking Club and are now in the process of developing other activities including basketball, cricket, football, swimming and a dance league.
