About PACC

Around 1 in 3 men and 50% of women are not achieving recommended levels of activity for good health, with people with long term conditions twice as likely to be amongst the least active.

Physical Activity Clinical Champions is an initiative that offers FREE clinician to clinician training to people working in healthcare, which supports them to improve patient care and outcomes.

PACC training was initially developed as part of the Moving Health Professionals Programme, run by Sport England and Public Health England (now OHID). In June 2023, a consortium consisting of The Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, Sheffield, Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine UK and Intelligent Health began a transition phase to take over the support and running of the programme to enable a sustainable ongoing platform for the future.

The PACC programme provides free face to face (online or in person) training to people working in healthcare, and this is delivered nationwide by a number of different physical activity champions. The new model which is currently in development aims to provide this training, whilst also developing resources and training in places throughout the UK. Currently, we are working with Public Health teams in Oxford, Birmingham, Sheffield and Tower Hamlets to develop this place based approach.
