Introduction

People with health conditions are on average, twice as likely to be inactive than people without a condition. Therefore, people who regularly engage with health care professionals are far more likely to be inactive. Increasing physical activity levels, particularly by targeting the least active, contributes to improving population health and wellbeing and can help reduce the strain on health and social systems. This webpage provides an overview of key work to support health care professionals, and affiliated roles, to embed physical activity in their practice.
