Our Practice has been awarded the 'RCGP Active Practice Charter'
As a Practice, we recognise the health benefits of regular physical activity and breaking up time seated or lying awake. We have been awarded for achieving the RCGP Active Practice Charter by making the following active changes:
- To reduce sedentary behaviour in staff by ensuring we all move every hour and encouraging more exercise
- To reduce sedentary behaviour in patients by advertising local support groups and exercise classes/groups (see below)
- To increase physical activity in staff by encouraging more exercise including walking/running/cycling
- To increase physical activity in patients by informing them of local classes and groups (see below)
Regularly active people have lower health risks.
