  3. Cycling and walking could be given on prescription

    Patients could be prescribed cycling or walking by their GP as part of a new social prescribing scheme.

    The plan hopes to help people in Birmingham and the Black Country get more active with free-to-access cycling and walking activities, such as walking groups and cycle training.

    The new scheme has been launched by the Active Wellbeing Society working with the West Midlands Combined Authority to try to tackle issues such as obesity, inactivity and loneliness, which have been a factor for those hardest hit by the Covid 19 pandemic.

    The scheme will initially run through eight surgeries and health centres, where patients may be referred to non-clinical activities to combat physical or mental health issues.

    Leila Yafai, senior social prescribing link worker, who works in Bordesley East, said: “Having witnessed the isolation and social, physical and mental impacts of the pandemic, social prescribing is a helping hand.”

    Dr Subeena Suleman, clinical director at Iridium Medical Practice, added: “These services open up opportunities for people to get more physically active, where in a supported environment they are able to build their confidence and ability and can see genuinely life-changing results, not just in their physical health but in a range of ways.”
