About the Walk and Talk Group
These walks are open to any patients who has been affected by cancer, their partners or friends, giving people the opportunity to share their experiences, to listen to those of others, and to get advice from the team’s specialist nurses. They will help you get fitter too!
The George Eliot Hospital wants to encourage everyone who has been affected by cancer to come along, as they often make patients feel more confident and better supported.
Exercise and keeping fit can have a positive effect on the health and wellbeing of everyone, and this is a great opportunity to stay active during the week, whilst meeting new people.
Macmillan Oncology Breast Clinical Nurse Specialist, Alison Syborn said: “People have made friends during our walks, and even meet them socially away from the group. The walks have helped their confidence meeting up with people again, especially if they are still not back at work. “Walkers look forward to coming each week come rain or shine.”
