NMC Wellbeing Programme
The NMC has provided a fully accessible, holistic approach to therapy for many years. This year this has been formalised this into a yearlong programme with a variety of events, sessions, activities open to the NMC community.
The programme has 4 seasons, each with its own core theme. The first season (Winter) focused on Mental Health followed by Nutrition in Spring and then Pain, Fatigue and Sleep in Summer.
The focus of our 4th season (Autumn) is Taking Control of Your Health.
The Autumn programme is wide-ranging and consists of Mindful Tuesdays, Active Wednesdays and Education Thursdays.
Topics for Education Thursdays include podiatry and lymphedema, tissue viability and menopausal and prostrate health.

We had 110 individuals sign up to the sessions, with 78 individuals attending at least one session.
More females than males attended with the most popular age being 46-55.
The knowledge sessions run by Bryn and Paul were the highest attendance topping out at 40.
The Spring sessions encompassed subjects such as swallowing, diets, and women's/men's health with a selection of speakers from inside and outside NMC. There were also weekly seated Yoga sessions which were adapted to suit the NMC community. The successful Spring programme saw 130 people take part, with the highest attendance for a single session being 40.
Summer focussed on Pain, Fatigue and Sleep with knowledge sessions that included: the Science of Pain, Fatigue and Sleep; Management: Breathing and Sleep and Chronic Fatigue and Pain.
