The GREEN EXERCISE PARTNERSHIP is a joint venture between Scottish Forestry (formerly Forestry Commission Scotland), NatureScot, NHS National Services Scotland and NHS Health Scotland. The Partnership aims to build links between the health and environment sectors, following growing evidence that public health can be improved by getting people engaged with the natural environment. Through its NHS Greenspace Demonstration Project, the Partnership has worked with a number of Area Health Boards to show the range of benefits that flow from positive investment in, and management of, the fabric of the NHS estate - the greenspace around hospitals and healthcare centres. Further partnership work has enabled engagement with hospitals and their neighbouring communities in order to activate more use of the outdoor estate by patients, staff, visitors and local groups.
