Dorset LNP publishes its Natural Health Position Paper after approving it at the September LNP Board meeting.  The position paper highlights the value that being in nature brings to both physical health and mental being and sets out some recommendations to ensure that we all make the most of our natural environment for our health benefits.

Dorset LNP is working with the Dorset Health and Wellbeing Board to discuss how best to take this agenda forward and is planning to engage with the Bournemouth and Poole Health and Wellbeing Board over the next few months.

The Partnership is already leading the roll out of the Natural Choices programme which sign-post people to nature-based health activities, and hopes to help facilitate future -nature-based health activities across the county.
