Healthy Living Week

We have been running London’s Healthy Living Week since 2016. More than 60 different NHS organisations and around 120,000 London employees took part in 2017′ s Healthy Living Week. It aims to inspire NHS staff to improve their health and wellbeing.

Healthy Living Week, which ran from 25 to 29 September in 2017, aims to make workplaces in London healthy, inspiring places to work, where staff can join with their colleagues to make being healthy a normal part of their day.

In 2017, we went beyond NHS with other organisations joining in to raise awareness of the importance of good workplace health.

Organisations and teams across the capital host a wide range of events to promote health and wellbeing. Activities range from lunchtime walks, early morning fitness classes, book clubs, mental health awareness sessions, healthy team lunches, juice bikes in breaks, rounders, singing workshops and zumba.

Londoners can also get involved by joining the five day #HealthyLivingWeek challenge or making a pledge to be healthier all year round.
