We are committed to promoting physical activity. My Rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care recently launched Moving Medicine, which is a practical web tool for health professionals to use with their patients and Public Health England is working with the Royal Colleges to embed physical activity within clinical practice so that health professionals can use routine consultations to promote physical activity. The United Kingdom Chief Medical Officers have also endorsed and published physical activity guidelines for disabled adults to encourage them to be active.
