Physical Activity - by Dr Chris Rufford

by Ipswichandeastsuffolk ccg on 07 September 2015 03:54
Physical inactivity is the greatest public health problem of the 21st century. Twice as many people die from inactivity than obesity every year. 63% of the UK population is  inactive compared with 18% in Holland. It costs the NHS £8.2bn per year. In October 2014 Public Health England launched the national activity framework ‘everybody active every day’. It included a key domain for action on ‘Moving professionals’ to engage professional networks to support understanding and awareness of and greater engagement in physical activity among the wider public.
