The UK Chief Medical Officers' physical activity guidelines reinforce the importance of physical activity by providing recommendations on the frequency, intensity, duration and types of physical activity required for health benefits.
The guidelines apply across different age groups, life stages (from early to later years), irrespective of gender, ethnicity or socio-economic status.
The guidelines are based on the best available evidence and reflect what we know now about the relationship between physical activity and health. We know there are clear health inequalities in relation to physical inactivity. These inequalities are related to age, gender, socio-economic status, disability, ethnicity and long-term conditions.
Local Physical Activity Guideline Leaflets
We have produced localised leaflets of the Chief Medical Officer's Infographics explaining the physical activity needed for general health benefits at different life stages.
These are available for our partners to use and can be downloaded below. If you require these in a printable format please contact us on the details below.
