Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson: Time for PHE to prioritise physical activity

0 0
Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Chair of ukactive, has today called on the Department of Health to make Turning the Tide of Inactivity one of its main priorities for the upcoming year.

Speaking at a Public Health England organised conference this week to review the one-year progress of its Everybody Active, Every Day framework, the ukactive chair said more must be done to overcome the inactivity epidemic. 

The recent Generation Inactive report from ukactive showed that only half of seven-year-olds are meeting recommended physical activity guidelines of 60 minutes per day. Separate research has shown that youth activity levels are continuing to decline. 

There was widespread dismay in the health and fitness sector when PHE failed to list tackling physical inactivity as one of its seven top priorities last year. Grey-Thompson said this cannot be repeated if the government health body is to ‘walk the walk’ on its commitment to promoting activity.
