Weekly GP walk in Harrow
40 people descended on the GP Direct Surgery at 9.30am on Sunday 17th July. This was no administration error however, they were there to attend Dr Merali's first health walk around West Harrow Recreational Ground.
Dr Merali led the walking, with the aim of inspiring people into exercise:
"I'd say around 90 per cent of my patients would benefit from exercise as simple as walking to the shops or getting off a stop earlier on the tube. Even walking 10 minutes at a time would benefit your health and happiness. By practicising what I preach after 36 years with the NHS I am hoping to encourage more people to get active and happy.
It is good to see so many from different ethnic backgrounds walking, talking, meeting new people and enjoying fresh air in our lovely local park.”
The walk will take place every Sunday at 9.30am starting from the surgery address (HA2 0RQ), and walking through West Harrow Recreation Ground for 30 minutes.
