Information for Public Health Professionals

For professionals wishing to refer residents/patients who require additional support to increase physical activity levels and are inactive and/or have a long-term health condition, it is recommended they refer into Live Well, Stay Well



There is a range of NICE guidelines specifically for physical activity, as well as how physical activity should be embedded into wider areas, that provides professionals with information and approaches to get residents more active – see the following link: https://www.nice.org.uk/Guidance/Lifestyle-and-wellbeing/Physical-activity


Leap – the Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Sport and Activity Partnership – can support organisations to increase physical activity levels amongst residents. Support includes funding advice, workforce, support to understand national policy/evidence and links to wider networks such as other organisations, national governing bodies of sport and schools. More information can be found by visiting http://www.leapwithus.org.uk/
