Workshops - have a go

Have a go at British Sign Language

Have a go at learning some key phrases in British Sign Language (BSL) in our sign language workshop. UHD nurse, Annabel Young, along with her little helper, will show you how to sign some key phrases. You can download the BSL fingerspelling sheet which explains how to sign letters below and click here to find out about courses. Don't forget to post a video or photo of you having a go at signing on social media and tag #UHDHERO.

Get active with the physios

Everyone knows how important it is to stay active so take part in one of these short exercise classes with our UHD physios. Please only take part if you feel able.

Jason, one of our children's physio assistants, takes you through a 10 minute HIIT workout from our Children's Development Centre at Poole Hospital. This session is suitable for children (and adults!) over the age of six. Follow @childrensphysiopgh on Instagram, @childrensphysiopoole on Facebook and @childphysiopgh on Twitter for more from #TeamUHD.
