Moving Medicine is a collaborative initiative led by the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine in the UK

Strategic partners

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 .
