Norfolk health bosses make Olympic pledge

Health bosses have pledged to get more active in the run up to the Olympic Games.

Fifteen NHS officials, including Anna Dugdale, the chief executive of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, made a health commitment through Active Norfolk's Olympic legacy project Pledge 2012.

Pledges made included cycling to work, getting members of their team to take a designated lunch break and go for a walk, join a rowing team and use the stairs daily.

Others who made pledges last Thursday at the Breckland Council Offices in Dereham were Alan Murray, director of service delivery at the East of England Ambulance Service, Tracy Cannell, joint managing director of East Coast Community Health and Care, and Andrew Morgan, chief executive of NHS Norfolk and Waveney.
