GPs and Healthcare Professionals Promoting Physical Activity

Dr. Zoe Williams discusses the broad benefits of physical activity when managing multiple long-term health conditions and how GPs and Healthcare Professionals can encourage patients to move more as part of their care plan. She also describes how surgeries can more effectively provide best practice, acting as a role model in the community, and encouraging healthcare professionals to better promote physical activity and its many benefits.

Here in Devon, we are focused on ensuring there are enough opportunities for people with health conditions to get active and that they are accessible and inclusive. You can find out more about by going to our Movement for Health and Wellbeing page and Movement in Later Life page.

We also support the We Are Undefeatable campaign locally. We Are Undefeatable is a national campaign and movement that encourages and supports the millions of people living with a range of long-term health conditions to be active in a way that works for them.
