Moving Medicine is a collaborative initiative led by the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine in the UK
Moving Medicine was set up and founded in 2018 in partnership with Public Health England and Sport England, using funding from the National Lottery.
Sport Scotland and NHS Scotland became key partners of the initiative in 2019 particularly contributing to the development of the paediatric resources .
Moving Medicine has since received funding from Public Health Agency Northern Ireland and we are looking forward to working with them in 2020.
The British Association for Sport and Exercise Medicine contributed to and funded the development of the primary care prescribing movement resource.
Our online course, Active Conversations, has been developed in partnership with the Academy for Health Coaching.
We are extremely grateful to the following key academic partners who lead external review and appraisal of the evidence base generated by Moving Medicine teams:
Dr Charlie Foster OBE at The Centre for Exercise, Nutrition and Health Sciences, University of Bristol
Dr Paul Kelly at The Physical Activity and Health Research Centre, University of Edinburgh
We are delighted to work in partnership with the Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Medicine who lead the Moving Medicine initiative in Australasia.
