GP parkrun Pledge Day – Saturday 1 June

image003

In June 2018, the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and parkrun UK launched a groundbreaking initiative to promote the social prescribing of physical activity. This builds on the NHS’s commitment, under it’s 10 Year Plan, to encourage the use of non medical interventions to address the underlying causes of ill health.

To celebtrate the national success of this initiative, we aim to get as many GP practice staff as possible to pledge to walk, jog, run and volunteer on 1 June at Clumber parkrun, and bring patients, family and friends along. We want to raise awareness of parkrun across the health sector and promote participation by those who are less active or have health conditions.

If you're a GP, or work in a GP practice, please encourage your colleagues and patients to get involved. To find out more, visit the parkrun practice page or pledge to get involved.
