In an exciting and innovative initiative, the RCGP is collaborating with parkrun UK to promote the health and wellbeing of staff and patients. Under this initiative, GP practices across the UK are encouraged to develop close links with their local parkrun to become parkrun practices.
Involvement in this initiative will help practices:
● Improve the health and wellbeing of practice staff
● Improve the health and wellbeing of patients, reducing the need for lifelong medication
● Raise awareness amongst the parkrun community of services that practices provide
● Help develop a local community and environment centred around wellness generation
● Support the UK-wide movement to scale up social prescribing activities
