NHS staff take a stroll

Have your say

Staff from NHS Sheffield will be donning their flats and taking a lunchtime stroll to mark two health awareness weeks.

On Wednesday May 4, staff will walk out of the NHS Sheffield HQ on their lunch break for a local history tour of Darnall.

The event is part of Walk Sheffield, which takes place across the city from May 14 to 22, while national Walk to Work week takes place from May 9 to 13.

Dawn Lockley, from NHS Sheffield, said: “Walking has been described as the nearest thing to perfect exercise – it’s free, easy and suitable for virtually everyone, regardless of their fitness.

“The Walk Sheffield event is very much about getting Sheffield walking on a day-to-day basis and this starts with our own staff.”
