Posted on: September 21st, 2020 by Rachel Gowland No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) partnered with Public Health England (PHE), Sport England and This Mum Moves to develop the Physical Activity for Health elearning programme, providing healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills to provide brief physical activity advice to their patients.

The Great British Week of Sport is taking place from Saturday 19 September to Sunday 27 September, as a new initiative led by UKactive, with support from Public Health England’s Better Health campaign and Sport England.  The awareness week aims to highlight the benefits that sport and physical activity have on people’s mental and physical wellbeing.
