About the NHS North West Games

The NHS North West Games is an annual series of events to encourage NHS employees to come together to take part in a series of fun and friendly inter-Trust sport competitions.

Initiated by the Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust, the event first ran in 2011 and has had entry from over 20 NHS Trusts and thousands of NHS employees from across the North West of England over nine years.  All events and activities are inclusive, allowing people of any age, ability or level of fitness to be able to take part.

The NHS North West Games is coordinated by a steering group of NHS Trusts and organisations, supported by MSP and Active Cheshire capacity in the planning, delivery and evaluation of events.  Participating NHS Trusts and organisations each pay a small fee that is accumulated together to cover the cost of running the events, which means that participation for NHS staff is free (providing that their Trust has signed up).
