The Lodge Surgery Health Route

Health Route Map

We are delighted to share details of a project that Dr Heath worked on in conjunction with NHS Forest.  The project aims to improve the health and wellbeing of patients, staff and communities by increasing access to green space on or near NHS land.

Spending time in nature can reduce anxiety and improve your mood and physical activity is known to reduce your risk of diabetes, depression, dementia and cardiovascular diseases.  It is free and fun!

Dr Heath received grants from Tesco Bags of Help scheme and Chippenham Town Council to fund the project.

You may have already spotted the signs on lamp posts marking the walk but you can download the route map here or ask Reception for a copy if you are unable to print it. And let us know if you do the walk!
