Families on the Isle of Dogs in London’s East End are being urged today to self-managing their health issues in a fun “getting to know you” event.
Therapy experts from east London’s Ability Bow gymnasium are holding a free Health & Wellbeing fun-day event showing people how to look after themselves and take care of any long-term problems.
The event in partnership with the Healthy Island Partnership, a Primary Care network of the four GP practices on the Isle of Dogs, and Tower Hamlets Clinical Commissioning Group, includes demonstrations in what’s available in the area with try-out ‘tasters’ and interactive workshops to encourage a healthy living lifestyle.
The focus is on self-management of long-term conditions by joining health and wellbeing services to the community.
Today’s event is at Calder’s Wharf in Island Gardens, Cubitt Town, at the southern end of the island, from 12 noon to 3pm.
