No posters for Couch to 5K in docs?

I've never seen any posters for Couch to 5K in my GP's surgery. Odd as it's an NHS initiative so I would have thought they would be keen to 'shout' about it. Anyone seen it displayed in doctors surgeries? Just curious!

No, I printed off and gave my GP a c25k poster a few years back and they said they would put it up, but I never did see it up on the wall...

It's odd isn't it. I will do the same and give one this week. You'd think they would be keen for people to do this!

Nope and one of my GPS had never heard of it either....

That's just shocking! I am amazed. It would help so many people and probably help to reduce some medications I would guess!

Lannodatruffe organised posters a while back.

I heard about c25k from a keep fit instructor...

Strange isn't it I worked in a GP surgery and seeing as it is NHS I thought it would be promoted but no one admitted to knowing anything about it ! I suggested posters etc but they weren't interested 😢 I work at the hospital now and NHS C25 is displayed in our department and so it should it's excellent for fitness and stamina😀

I think like a lot of very large organisations there is sadly no 'joined up' thinking! :( It's a shame!

Where do we get the posters from?

I had a look on this site but they seem to be a few years out of date!
