As part of its remit to support people in adopting healthier lifestyles, promote self-care and prevent disease, the national One You social marketing campaign was adapted to engage with patients in Rushcliffe. Devised by Public Health England (PHE) and predominantly aimed at those aged 40 to 60, the campaign aimed to inform and support people in making simple but crucial changes to the way they live and the health choices they make. It also intends to give people greater confidence in actively managing their own health to prevent disease and improve their quality of life into older age.
Patient information was produced about local opportunities to increase physical activity and manage mental health and wellbeing alongside using national, digital resources including the One You online health questionnaire. A team of volunteers from Rushcliffe, including GPs, service improvement staff and patient representatives, took part in a summer of One You roadshows – attending several large community events across Rushcliffe between June and September:
A free, fun festival of health, sport and wellbeing held annually in the Borough
Sunday Funday is an annual event, which is jointly funded by Rushcliffe Borough Council and takes place in September at Rushcliffe Country Park.
The event is based around the Change4Life principles – Eat Well, Move More, Live Longer.
The public is given opportunity to have a go at lots of fun sports and physical activities and sample lots of tasty healthy treats from local growers and makers.
This year, Sunday Funday took place on Sunday 10 September from 12-5pm.
