‘Sustainable transport company, Mosodi, are working with the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group, who run 4 acute hospitals and community services in Greater Manchester, to encourage travel behaviour change amongst staff at their Oldham Care Organisation and Royal Oldham Hospital site. The 1dayaweek campaign provides employers with a professionally designed behaviour change campaign and monthly prize incentives and directly target and inspire drivers to make small commute changes, rather than traditional approaches previously used. 1dayaweek is being delivered at part of the travel plan for a new development at the hospital and the Group Sustainable Development (Green) Plan.
The launch of a campaign at Royal Oldham Hospital follows a successful 1dayaweek campaign during 2019 at Salford Royal Hospital, which identified untapped interest in travel and work behaviour change. The photos shown are from an event and the branded cycle hub at Salford Royal Hospital. This helped greatly during the COVID pandemic in enabling some quick measures with regard to home working and active travel to be introduced. The activity at Royal Oldham Hospital will seek to build and retain some of the existing home working and active travel from the pandemic, whilst encouraging more occasional day travel change as lockdown eases’.
