We ran a weight loss challenge over twelve weeks with good results in not only weight loss but improved mental health and positive lifestyle changes. Well done to Ben who won the challenge and continues to do well.
We are developing our work with a variety of health promotion partners. Cavendish Cancer Care has an information hub within the market. This joint working has a positive impact on our clients. We often signpost to the hub for information about support services for clients who have family members dealing with cancer and the staff on the hub signpost clients to us if they have visitors with symptoms they’re concerned about.
Macmillan Cancer care funded the purchase of self-examination models and these are regularly used on the stall and on health promotion events in the community. It was agreed by all that these are a great way to start, what can be, a very difficult conversation.
We also met Emma, one of the communication team at the Sheffield clinical commissioning group, She’ll be helping to share out campaigns on their media and has been showing us some of the wonders of Tik Tok so watch this space!!
