GP practices told to prescribe sport and exercise

The Royal College of GPs and Sport England have teamed up to launch the “active practice charter” to encourage GP practices to increase activity and reduce sedentary behaviour in their patients and staff.

The initiative aims to raise awareness of simple changes that can be made to improve physical and mental wellbeing, such as signposting to local exercise classes or partnering with a nearby activity provider.
