Information for Public Health Professionals

It is recommended that professionals refer into Live Well, Stay Well if they wish to refer residents/patients who:

  • Need extra support to increase physical activity levels
  • Are inactive
  • Have a long-term health condition

 


There are a range of NICE guidelines to provide professionals with information to get residents more active. The guidelines are for physical activity and how it should be embedded in wider areas. See the following link https://www.nice.org.uk/Guidance/Lifestyle-and-wellbeing/Physical-activity

 

Leap are the Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Sport and Activity Partnership. They support organisations to increase physical activity levels amongst residents. Support includes:

  • Funding advice
  • Workforce
  • Support to understand national policy/evidence
  • Links to wider networks such as other organisations, national governing bodies of sport and schools.
