Andrew Boyd is the RCGP’s Clinical Champion for Physical Activity and Lifestyle. The RCGP has formed a partnership with Park Run UK and has already signed up over 400 practices to the park run initiative. Park Runs are free, weekly 5 kilometre runs (or walks) open to anyone over the age of 4 of any ability. They run in over 750 locations in the UK and have proven a hugely successful way of encouraging physical activity and wellbeing. Andrew explains how the partnership came about, and how practices can become involved. He describes two case-studies of patients who have benefited and explains some of the other initiatives covered by his champion role.
