New tool to make it easier for health professionals to talk about physical activity

The Moving Medicine tool will help healthcare professionals advise patients on how physical activity can help to manage their conditions, prevent disease and aid recovery.

It is produced by the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine (FSEM) in partnership with Public Health England (PHE) and Sport England with National Lottery funding.

The tool is aimed particularly at those with the most common long term health conditions, such as cancer, depression, musculoskeletal pain and type 2 diabetes.
