Salsa prescribed by Stroud GP's


Patients in need of a pick me up are being given a different kind of prescription by GPs in Gloucestershire.

Doctors in Stroud are sending people to Salsa dance classes in an effort to improve their fitness. And if it's successful the pilot project could be stepping out further afield.

BBC Points West's Steve Knibbs has been to one of the lessons where he met Gina Humphris from Stroud District Council, Salsa patient Angela Probert and GP Dr Simon Opher from the May Lane Surgery in Stroud.
