|All of us at CHP would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and prosperous new year! 2019 has been a good year for us. Our new clinic in St. John’s Wood continues to grow, Chelsea and Hydrotherapy is still thriving and Chancery Lane is busy with all our working city folk. We’ve been working hard this year behind the scenes too. Our website has a fresh new look, we’ve partnered with some fantastic companies, and our Physios have been featured across the mainstream media, both TV and print, sharing their expertise.
As you will see in the newsletter, we feel very much part of our communities in all our clinics and like to get involved. We like to think of ourselves as a strong family unit. We look after you but also each other. A proudest day for me this year was one sunny September day, watching 21 of our team take part in the London Duathlon in Richmond Park. We did it to raise money for our colleague Helle, who is bravely battling Ovarian Cancer. We superseded our target of raising £5k, raising well over £6k instead! Our team ran and cycled some amazing times competitively, but most of all we laughed and supported each other.
Team CHP look forward to welcoming you through our doors next year. We are excited to get going, so see you then!

National Fitness Day
On 25 September, Royal Hospital Chelsea hosted UK Active’s flagship event, National Fitness Day. A countrywide campaign to promote activity as part of a healthy lifestyle. The In-Pensioners and children from the local St Joseph’s primary school took part in workouts led by Dame Darcey Bussell and the Chelsea Football Club Foundation. The Physios and pensioners also got active in the gym, thinking about what fitness means to them. If you feel inspired to get more active, but are not sure where to start due to injury or ill-health then get in touch and we can help you to achieve your goals in 2020.
