Stay well this winter – keep active

A new website has recently been launched called Moving Medicine. The tool kit provided is an initiative by the Faculty of Sport & Exercise Medicine, in partnership with Public Health England, Sport England and the Lottery Fund.

It is aimed at supporting primary care staff such as GP’s and Practice Nurses to have conversations about physical activity and its benefits on supporting & managing long term health conditions. We are sure it will also be of interest to homecare providers in helping to encourage some of the people they support to be as active as possible.

There is guidance on how to incorporate a discussion in to the space of 1 minutes; 5 minutes; or longer. Along with information graphs that people can take away.
