BHWC Get Active is a challenge for all patients and staff during the month of April.

We have kept the overall challenge simple so you can walk and run as many kilometers as possible and the person who travels the furthest wins.

But we do not want anyone to miss out!

If you are in a wheelchair you can take part in Anbreen’s Wheelchair Challenge. If you are over 50, and worried about getting out, you can join Monique’s Over 50s walking group.

At BHWC we are offering a course free of charge to our diabetics and to our patients with pre-diabetes.

The NHS App

The NHS App allows you to access a range of NHS services.

And we have separate competitions running for children and over 70s.

There are many challenges to join to compete against others and win incentives. 

The better option might be to join the ones where you are just improving yourself – compete against yourself.

Although we feel we have many actiities suitable for everyone, if yu feel none of these challenges are suitable for you contact us, via the feedback form, and we will try our best to include you in a challenge. We want EVERYONE to be able to increase their activity this month.
