Exciting New Service In The South Rural Area Of Suffolk

Active Suffolk is pleased to announce that their Active Wellbeing Service will be available to residents in the South Rural area of Suffolk. The service is in collaboration with the South Rural Primary Care Network GP Surgeries that includes: Bildeston Health Centre, Constable Medical Practice, Hadleigh Boxford Group Practice, Holbrook & Shotley Practice and Needham Market Country Practice.

The project, which will support hundreds of inactive adults to improve their physical and mental health through physical activity, will kick off this May with an online launch, inviting local residents, health professionals, stakeholders and key partners to come together to better understand the Active Wellbeing Service.

This will be hosted virtually on Thursday 20 May from noon-1pm and you can book your place at: www.activewellbeingsrpcn.eventbrite.co.uk  

Janet Lawrence, Project Officer at Active Suffolk said:

“We have previously worked with other surgeries across Suffolk to deliver the Active Wellbeing Service. Our latest evaluation tells us that not only are the adults who are accessing the Active Wellbeing service becoming more active but 55% reported on improved mental wellbeing, 28% were able to significantly reduce their body mass index and 33% experienced improved sleep after just three months

“We are really excited to be able to continue this work to support more local people and to begin collaborating with the other surgeries within the South Rural Primary Care Network.”
