The importance of being active can never be underestimated. The evidence to support the health benefits of regular physical activity for all groups is compelling, and physical activity is not just a health issue. It brings people together to enjoy shared activities and contributes to building strong communities. Therefore, being active every day provides a foundation for a healthier and happier life. Even small changes can make a big difference over time, and these new resources will allow health care professionals to support and encourage people to be active whether they are starting out or want to improve their health and fitness.

Professor Sir Michael McBride, Chief Medical Officer for Northern Ireland.

Moving Medicine is the single most important advance in therapeutics in my 50 years in medicine. The benefit to harm ratio is outstandingly favourable and every drug or psychological prescription for a long-term condition should be partnered by a Moving Medicine prescription of activity.

Muir Gray Kt CBE DSc MD

Moving Medicine will ensure that all health care professionals have up to date information on physical activity presented in a useable, easy to understand format, enabling them to inform their patients and motivate them to become more active.
