The Ridge Medical Practice Needs You To Become A Practice Health Champion!

RECRUITMENT WEEK – This was held at the beginning of September, but there is still time to join us if you would like to. Please look out for details in and around the practice.

Are you interested in health and would like to encourage others to improve their health and wellbeing? Practice Health Champions volunteer with their GP Practice to deliver health and wellbeing activities to patients and the wider community. To become a Practice Health Champion you will need to attend a 2 day training course which will develop your knowledge, skills, experience and passion. Following this, the Practice Health Champions will volunteer with the practice for approximately 3 hours per week. The Practice Health Champions will meet regularly with GP practice staff to identify and explore health concerns and issues which affect patients of the practice.

We are also now setting up a new Practice Health Champions group to be run by Young People. We have so many young patients who can offer ideas and help to the practice and other patients that we think this will be a valuable addition to this voluntary service. Please contact us on the number below or email elizabeth.wilson@bradford.nhs.uk if you are a young person who would like to get involved.

We hold regular, fun activity sessions such as our Chairobics, as you can see from this link. We are very glad to announce that Chairobics has been so successful it is now on permanently! We also offer Healthy Eating advice and tasters every month.

Healthy Eating

A Therapeutic Writing Group, Share or Shred, is offered here at The Ridge, run by Practice Health Champions. Please ask your GP or Nurse to refer you, to learn more about the benefits of therapeutic writing. Please note, you need to be able to commit to six sessions as it is part of a programme.

If you are interested in something, but have missed the date, please contact us for information on when the next sessions will take place. A full list can be seen here on our Activity List.

For more information contact 01274 425625 or email RidgePracticeChampions@bradford.nhs.uk. Application forms are available via the above contact methods or the practice reception. We are recruiting now for the next round of training, so please feel free to ask for an application form.
