The benefits of excercise as a health priorty - by Jak Phillips
Tackling physical inactivity must become a frontline health priority for the UK’s next government, ahead of the separate issue of obesity, says a new Health Select Committee report published today. The report highlights the “huge health benefits” of physical activity and notes that individual lifestyle interventions need to be underpinned by broader initiatives designed to improve the health of the wider population.
"The extraordinary benefits of exercise in improving physical and mental health should be made clear and accessible to everyone, whatever their current level of fitness,” said chair of the Committee, Dr Sarah Wollaston MP.
“The committee calls on the NHS, Local Authorities and the next government to work together to prioritise prevention and public health and we have set out achievable recommendations for action which could help to transform people's lives and wellbeing.”
