Event offers advice on how to be ‘Fit for living, Fit for Life’

A drop-in event in Hemel Hempstead on Saturday 12 October is offering expert advice on how people can keep their bones, joints and spine healthy and also find out more about the NHS Community Integrated Musculoskeletal Service provided by Connect Health.

 

‘Fit for living, Fit for Life’ runs from 11am to 3pm in Connect Health’s clinic in Wolsey House, Wolsey Road, Hemel Hempstead and is being jointly organised with Herts Valleys CCG.

Connect Health consultants and physiotherapists will be running interactive sessions at 11.30am, 12.30pm and 1.30pm with simple exercises and tips for protecting your joints, keeping your bones healthy and having strong muscles to help to prevent falls and other problems.

Visitors will also be able to tour the Connect Health facilities at Wolsey House which have recently received a significant investment, based on patient feedback. Work has included upgrading automatic assisted doors, provision of designated disabled parking spaces, a full refurbishment, upgraded gym equipment and the introduction of a Welcome Host to greet and sign in patients. You will also be able to chat to the Connect Health team, see demos of their Digital Patient Portal and find out more about the PhysioLine service that gives patients rapid telephone access to physiotherapy assessment and self-help.

Rachel Gori, Regional Manager South, Connect Health added “We are really pleased to be able to open our doors to the public in order to support people’s health and wellbeing. The Community Integrated Musculoskeletal Service offers a range of services, including physiotherapy, pain/chronic fatigue, rheumatology and postural stability and the day will shine a light on how to stay fit for life as well as hear from patients and clinicians.”

Other local organisations will also be on hand to offer health and wellbeing advice including the Royal Osteoporosis Society, Hertfordshire Health Walks and Mediation Herts.
