W@W! is another resounding success thanks to CSP members

Nearly 400 CSP members took part in this year’s WorkOut@Work event, organised by the society, making it the most successful in the six years since it began.


W@W! participants at All Hallows Healthcare Trust in Suffolk enjoyed some summer sun

Originally on a fixed day each June, events can now be held over a number of months during the summer.

‘Now members can run the events on days that best suit them,’ said Jennie Edmondson, head of campaigns and regional engagement at the CSP.

The campaign encourages employees to become more physically active – not just at work but outside work too.

Members have also used the campaign as a great influencing opportunity with local commissioners and politicians.

South Warwickshire NHS Trust involved their CEO, Glen Burley, director of nursing, Helen Lancaster, and local MP for Warwick and Leamington, Chris White, in their 30-day W@W fitness challenge.

Others have taken a more commercial approach. Nick Livadas, clinical manager at Physiotherapy Matters, teamed up with Tyne and Wear Metro operator DB Regio for his event.

‘It’s fantastic to see a company like DB Regio embracing the WorkOut@Work campaign and supporting their staff in improving their health and fitness,’ said Mr Livadas.

The 21 September issue of Frontline will also feature reports and photography.

Meanwhile, CSP members have signed up to nearly 500 - a record number - of events marking Older People’s Day on 1 October.
