GP 'overwhelmed' by impact of health walks

Published: 14th October 2019

Leeds Let's Get Active Walks have made this short video, where a local GP and a walk leader share their experience of running health walks and the difference it makes. Walkers Paul and Peter also share their experiences.

GP George Winder describes the walks as:

“a phenomenal thing that’s available as a resource to our community…thanks to the energy and passion of the volunteers who make it happen.”

“From a GP perspective, we can see the improvement to the individual and the difference it makes in their day-to-day lives – but also the change in culture in this GP practice and in the community about how people can stay healthy, well and happy without medicine.”
