About Active Patients
Helping you lead a full, active life
The Active Patients website and community is about encouraging and empowering all patients to play an active role in their treatment and recovery, to make informed choices and manage their pathways.
It’s also a place for patients and healthcare professionals to come together and provide ‘information, insight and inspiration’ for our members to lead full, active lives.
Setting active goals for life after surgery
We encourage patients to set active goals – a key part of recovery and living an active life. An active goal can be anything from planning a shopping trip with friends, to taking on a sporting challenge like a running or cycling event.
This is just the beginning…
