It is said that if physical activity was a pill, it would be classed as a wonder drug, however too many of us do not take the recommended dose. An increase
in physical activity alongside a healthy lifestyle helps you look after your heart, maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of serious illness and
strengthen muscles and bones. It can also reduce stress levels and lift your mood. The Active Wellbeing service works to support patients
from surgeries across the county to achieve their physical activity goals in a way that suits them and their needs.
This month, the Active Wellbeing Service has officially launched in three new locations across Babergh and Mid Suffolk. The service which
supports inactive patients aged 50+ is continuing to be delivered for patients of the Two Rivers Surgery in Ipswich, but the team have now
launched in Eye, Glemsford and Holbrook & Shotley.
Due to the current pandemic, the service has been adapted to offer patients in each location video calls or telephone consultations until face to face
appointments can resume. If you are from any of the surgeries listed, you can sign up for support today by clicking HERE
