Evidence and guidance

Physical activity guidelines

Guidance from the Chief Medical Officers in the UK on the amount and type of physical activity people should be doing to improve their health – the recommendations here form the basis of the Active Practice Charter and other key initiatives, and the freely accessible high definition infographics are great resources for waiting rooms, staff areas and clinical rooms!

NICE Guidance

Many NICE guidelines include physical activity in the recommendations.
