Get Physical: A half-day interactive event which explored how physical activity can be incorporated into the daily lives of NHS staff and patients to improve their health and well-being

Half of women and a third of men in England today are not sufficiently active to stay healthy.

Being inactive brings major health risks – depression, dementia, obesity, heart disease, cancer – and premature death.

Without action, the burden on health and social care will destabilise services and reduce the quality of life for individuals, their families and communities.

The NHS 5-year Forward View stresses the importance of NHS staff health and wellbeing.

“[The NHS] can, and should now become, a more activist agent of health-related social change.” (Simon Stevens, Chief Executive, NHS England)

This was reiterated in a major speech at the Health and Care Innovation Expo 2015 conference in Manchester.

“NHS staff have some of the most critical but demanding jobs in the country. When it comes to supporting the health of our own workforce, frankly the NHS needs to put its own house in order.”

Who attended

Representatives from the NHS primary and secondary care, clinicians, managers of patients with diabetes, obesity, and mental health issues, human resources, physical activity and public health providers, social services, and patient representatives interested in the health benefits of daily physical activity.
