Let’s Get Moving is a physical activity care pathway originally developed in 2012 by the Department of Health and is based on National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidance.

It was designed to provide a systematic approach to identifying and supporting adults, who were not meeting the CMO’s recommendations for physical activity to become more active, for the purpose of prevention and management of chronic disease.

ukactive developed its own version of the behaviour change intervention and have been supporting inactive people to set realistic and achievable physical activity goals for over 5 years.

Based on motivational interviewing techniques, Let’s Get Moving explores the personal barriers that patients might have to getting active and supports them to make positive changes to their lifestyle.

Through continuous monitoring, reporting, and evaluation we are able to demonstrate the impact of the Let’s Get Moving programme. We have established a structured process that allows us to monitor physical activity uplift, retention, and increases to participant’s mental wellbeing.

Let’s Get Moving has been delivered by ukactive across Luton and Bedfordshire, Birmingham, Kent, National Childbirth Trust, Waltham Abbey, and Essex with the programme and impact summarised here link report
