Work has been undertaken over the past year with NHS Health Scotland and other partners to create our first ever National Physical Activity Implementation Plan. It seeks to adapt the key elements of the Charter to the Scottish setting and link it directly to the Government’s active legacy ambitions for the Commonwealth Games.
The Plan focuses around 5 areas: Environment, Workplace Settings, NHS & Social Care, Education Settings and Sport & Active Recreation, identifying key milestones within these for a 10 year period after the Games this July.
Underpinning delivery of the overall commitments will be a series of detailed actions which will describe how these will be achieved. A programme board of senior leaders from across the five delivery themes will oversee delivery of this Plan. The delivery themes are supported by communication aims. The board will report to the new National Strategic Group on Sport and Physical Activity chaired by the Minister for Commonwealth Games and Support. As a Commonwealth Games legacy programme it will be evaluated as part of legacy 2014.
After a lengthy development, we hope that the lauch of this paper is welcomed and will provide the basis to further support your exisitng plans or to help influence the improtance of local delivery of physical activity in your area. We look forward to working with you in the development and maintenance of your local plans. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact PAHA; nhs.healthscotland-PAHA@nhs.net
