Doctors told to get on their bike in new social enterprise scheme.
Doctors at Andover Heath Centre will be using pedal power to help patients who can’t make it to the surgery.
The Andover practice, in Charlton Road, has purchased a reconditioned postal bike for the doctors to use when making patient house calls across the town, saving on fuel costs and playing a part in protecting the environment.
‘GPs on a Bike’ is an exciting social enterprise scheme set up by the Royal College of General Practitioners Wessex Faculty.
It is hoped the sight of doctors riding around town will promote the benefits of regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle as well as increasing visibility of GPs and their work within the local community.
