Why we need to talk about moving more
Over 20 NICE clinical and public health guidelines advocate for physical activity as part of patient treatment. And there's no reason why those with known health problems can't benefit, as outlined in the consensus statement on the risks of PA for people living with long-term conditions.
- 1 in 4 patients felt they would be more motivated to take part in PA if advised to do so by a healtcare professional
- Evidence demonstrates most patients with long term conditions want to be more active
- 68% of those with two or more long term conditions want to do more physical activity
