Inclusive Community Sports Programme for Patients

Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

Dan Ghurman - Sports, Fitness and Wellbeing Instructor, Arnold Lodge

What I have changed:

I have developed an inclusive community sports programme for patients who suffer from mental illness

How this benefited service users and / or staff:

Doing so, allows patients with community leave to participate in structured sports programmes. A new intervention included taking patients to a local swimming pool where they participate in exercise and build community integration.

Why i'm proud of it:

It has been fantastic to see patients who lack confidence being able to swim in a session that is open to the community.
