#Flourish

It’s free, available now and what’s more – it’s good for your health

The move more challenge is about supporting and encouraging our staff to do more physical activity. It doesn’t matter if it is walking, skipping, running or doing more revolutions in their wheelchair – it all counts to improving our health.  The evidence is clear, patient outcomes are improved when they are looked after by happy and well cared for healthcare professionals.

The #Flourish campaign is about more than just your health at work. We want to encourage our colleagues to take advantage of their local surroundings across Morecambe Bay, and how easy it is to get active!

As part of the Move More section in the #Flourish campaign, we have marked out 1 mile walking routes on each of our hospital sites!

Sometimes overlooked as a form of exercise, walking briskly can help you build stamina, burn excess calories and make your heart healthier. You don't have to walk for hours. A brisk 10-minute daily walk has lots of health benefits and counts towards your recommended 150 minutes of weekly exercise. 

Take a look at the route maps here, and remember to share your photos on social media using #Flourish.
