In partnership with Derby City North and Derby City South PCNs (Primary Care Network), our Health and Wellbeing programme aims to help patients with long term health conditions to lead more active lifestyles.
The programme aims to support patients within the PCN to take part in tailored physical activity to support them to live with a long term condition. Sessions are exclusively for patients of registered surgeries.

Neurological disorder wellbeing and mobility social
We're running a Neurological Disorder Wellbeing and Mobility Social for people to meet and socialise with those who have similar conditions. You'll have the chance to discuss your experiences, learn exercises that may be able to help you and speak to social prescribers about how they may be able to help you with any social issues.
The session is taking place at Nunsfield House, Boulton Lane, 1-3pm on 31st May. There is no need to book, just turn up on the day and feel free to bring a guest with you.
If you do not meet the project criteria but want to find out about healthier lifestyle choices and physical activity sessions, please see our full timetable here.
