Dr Maps or Walk4Life Maps

"It's great to offer something other than a prescription to patients."

Would you walk more if your GP or another health professional advised you to? We think you would and this belief was behind our first series of Dr Maps - beautifully drawn maps showing short local walks, directly from the health centre. The maps are made into tear-off pads which GPs can 'prescribe' to patients.

You can see what they look like here.

Just creating lovely maps isn't enough of course - a major part of the process is working with people who live and work in the area to make sure the maps reach the right people.

We seek to find the best walking routes in any locality - and the best way to find out is to talk to people who actually live there.

The whole point of the maps is to show people pleasant and interesting places to walk - so we need to make sure that's what they are.
