Physical Activity as Treatment

Further to our annual event in November 2018 on Physical Activity as Treatment, which was co-hosted with Public Health England, this theme was adopted into our proactive programmes of work. East Midlands Clinical Senate and Public Health England mapped physical activity as treatment across two care pathways: Physical Activity in Cardiology Pathways in Derbyshire and Physical Activity in Mental Health Pathways in Northamptonshire. It has culminated in a brief report that describes how and why physical activity as treatment might be commissioned system wide and across a range of conditions, based on the evidence currently available.
