Happy & Healthy Lifestyles Project
Celebration Event, Victoria Academy
The Happy & Healthy Lifestyles Project aims to empower Year 5 students in a number of primary schools across Barrow to design innovative ways to improve the health and lifestyles of their peers and families. The main focus for the project in the pilot year was Diet and Nutrition. Each of the primary schools appointed Happy & Healthy Lifestyle Ambassadors who conducted research and then established a suitable strategy to improve the diet of their school and community.
We were invited to this event to hear about the different initiatives that were implemented in each of the primary schools and to celebrate the achievements of the Ambassadors.
It was so impressive to hear about all of the hard work that the students have been putting in to their research and projects! Their ideas were brilliant and
the children spoke about them with pride and enthusiasm, showing how powerful it can be when young people have ownership over important decisions such as their health. We are really keen to be involved in this project as it moves into its second year, where the new focus will be on Sport and Exercise.
Better Care Together November Update
“Fab”ulous visit to Mighty Morecambe Bay
Roy Lilley and Dr Terri Porrett from the Academy of Fabulous NHS Stuff were welcomed back to Morecambe Bay again in November, as part of their national NHS Fab Change Week.
Both Roy and Terri are fantastic supporters and ambassadors for the NHS, and they work tirelessly, promoting and sharing some of the fabulous work that goes on everyday right across the country.
This was their second visit to Morecambe Bay, previously spending a day in Lancashire. This time they travelled to Barrow-in-Furness where, in a packed schedule, they visited Furness General Hospital, as well as touring Barrow with local GP Dr Geoff Joliffe and discussed how primary care is working in partnership with the hospital, and our ambitions and plans towards creating an accountable care system.
Roy and Terri also spent some time with volunteers from North West Blood Bikes, and were thoroughly impressed with the selfless dedication of the volunteers who provide free and urgent transport of blood and small parcels on behalf of the local NHS.
Before they left, they spent time at the Brilliant Bay Day held in Kendal – where staff from across the area shared further details on the improvement projects they have all led.
