Walking has been described as “near perfect exercise”. Almost all patients can take part in Health Walks, so there’s no referral form needed. Walks are easy, sociable and good fun, with a volunteer walk leader on hand to encourage participants to go at a pace they are comfortable with.
It’s a great way for people to get out and about, enjoy the sights of their local parks and gardens and meet new people. No specialist equipment is required however, participants are asked to dress for the weather and wear appropriate and comfortable footwear.
Health walks are free, last for up to one hour and take place regularly at various locations across Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
There are over 75 Health Walks every week across the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area. Click here to access a time table of walking activities across the Glasgow and Clyde area or select the appropriate local authority and find a walk in your patients’ area.
There is no need for a formal referral. For further information about your local walks, please call 0141 232 1860 and select, Health Walks.
Nothing! Almost all group led walks are free to attend.
