North West nurses take part in 'Olympic games'

  • Comment

Around 400 nurses and other NHS staff from 17 trusts took part in the NHS North West Games on 17 September.

The event was part of the NHS 2012 Challenge, which aims to get staff involved in physical activity in the run up to the Olympics.

Competitions included football, netball, badminton, rounders, touch rugby and athletics – and novelty events such as egg and spoon races and welly-wanging.

Pictured is staff nurse Natalie Quirk and specialist cancer nurse Anna Crofton, both from Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust.

Ms Crofton, who captained the Walton Centre netball team, said: “It has been a fantastic event and we now want to set up our own netball club because it’s created a lot of interest and everyone wants to carry on playing.”
