The Living Well Programme
The NHS is developing the concept of social prescribing in order to help patients to improve their health, wellbeing and social welfare by connecting them to community services, which are run by councils or local charities. Here at Balance Street Surgery, we are enthusiastic about this new initiative; indeed, we are ahead of the game!
We recently trialled a FREE 12 week ‘Living Well Programme’ that each week combined a seated exercise class with an informative talk. Hosted and coordinated by the team at Uttoxeter Cares Centre on Holly Road, each session was attended by up to 12 patients at a time. It proved to be a big success and was extremely popular for all those who attended the course which finished in December last year.
The seated exercise classes are run by a professional trainer from the Burton Albion Community team. Between the seated exercise and informative talks, refreshments will be provided by Tesco.
The programme will help you to improve your independence, help you stay as active as possible and offer the opportunity to meet new people, make new friends and share experiences.
The next FREE course will start on 9th May 2019 and will run 10am until 12noon at the Uttoxeter Cares Centre on Holly Road.
