Being more active has a huge impact on our health and wellbeing, so we are pleased to be partners in Reactivate, promoting sport and physical activity. NHS Buckinghamshire’s key priorities for physical activity are currently Simply Walk, the Bucks wide health walks programme; Walk Wycombe – encouraging walking as part of our daily lives and child obesity programmes, encouraging our young children to be more active.
