Improve the health and wellbeing of patients and carers, reducing the need for lifelong medications
Raising awareness amongst the parkrun community of services that practices provide
Contribute to the development of a local community and environment that is centered around wellness generation.
Support the UK-wide movement to scale up social prescribing activities
Welcome to Colsterworth Medical practise :-)
