Meeting new friends and enjoying the fresh air with other people affected by cancer have been just a few of the successes of a popular walking group led by nurses from George Eliot Hospital
The group of past and present patients from the hospital meet in Riversley Park, Nuneaton every Tuesday, whatever the weather.
People who attend have an opportunity to meet others going through the same situation and we encourage anyone who has been affected by cancer to come along when they have time.
Exercise and keeping fit can have a positive effect on the health and wellbeing of everyone and this popular ‘Walk and Talk’ group has been running for nearly two years.
Walkers have an opportunity to talk to nurse specialists in an informal setting about issues that affected their own personal situations and also make new friends.
Everyone enjoys having an opportunity to listen to the experiences of others and they can ask specific questions to the specialist nurses who lead the walks.
Macmillan oncology clinical nurse specialist, Alison Syborn, added: "We receive lovely feedback from the group saying they have made new friends and that it has given them something to look forward to each week. These walks help to rebuild their confidence after being unwell.
“Walkers are also welcome to bring a friend with them.”
The group meet between 1.30pm and 2.30pm every week just outside the Nuneaton and Bedworth Museum.
