Description

Moving Healthcare Professionals

PHE are offering FREE locally tailored training sessions for doctors and other interested health care professionals in primary care in Southwark.

Why should you consider talking about physical activity to your patients?

In Southwark, low levels of physical activity are responsible for:

  • 1 in 6 deaths (equal to smoking)

  • Southwark’s annual cost to the NHS for long term conditions was £2,278,153.

  • People who have a physically active lifestyle have a 20-35% lower risk of cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease and stroke compared to those who have a sedentary lifestyle,

  • Regular physical activity can reduce the risk of a number of health conditions, such as (colon / breast) cancer, diabetes, obesity, hypertension and depression.

Outcomes and benefits to you and your patients:

Improvement in patient’s longer term health and life expectancy.

  • You gain the knowledge, confidence and ability to counter difficult objections from resistant patients, with uplifting and inspiring advice.

  • Up to date CMO infographics that cover all life course.

  • Better NNT than other interventions i.e. 12 vs ~75 for smoking.

  • PA interventions don’t eat into your budgets, but help to treat various long term conditions, simultaneously.

  • Enable your patients to self-care and empower them to take control of their health because they are less dependant on drugs and healthcare professionals.

  • Reduce prescribing.
