NMC Wellbeing Programme
The NMC has provided a fully accessible, holistic approach to therapy for many years. In 2021, this was formalised into a yearlong programme with a variety of events, sessions, activities open to the NMC community.
The programme had 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 and finally the focus of our 4th season (Autumn) was Taking Control of Your Health.
During Summer 2022, NMC are holding a number of Wellbeing sessions which will be held in the marque.

Wellbeing Programme - Some Facts and Figures
All of our seasons have been a huge success!
The Winter knowledge, exercise, mindfulness and music sessions were very popular across our community, with the programme having more uptake than any other in NMC history.
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.
