UK physical activity guidelines review

The current UK physical activity guidelines were published by the Chief Medical Officers (CMOs) in 2011 and offer evidence-based recommendations for physical activity related health outcomes.

A review will be conducted to provide updated practical public health guidelines and develop potential implementation pathways for all groups, from healthcare to communication professionals.

Over the next 12 months, six Expert Working Groups (EWGs) will work with key national stakeholders to review the current guidelines and present new recommendations to the four UK CMOs based upon the latest scientific evidence.

The groups will comprise of UK and international experts in the field, and will reflect on the four age ranges of UK physical activity guidelines (under 5s, children and young people aged 6 to 18, adults aged 19 to 64 and older adults aged 65 plus).

A new CMO Expert Working Group for sedentary behavior across the life course and a CMO Expert Guidelines Implementation and Surveillance Working Group will also be formed.
