Active Hospitals

The Active Hospitals programme is part of the Moving Medicine package of support for healthcare professionals. It aims to change the physical activity culture within hospitals to encourage patients to move more.

Active Hospitals recognises the role that physical activity can play in supporting patient recovery. Physical activity is also a key tool for reducing the risk of readmission due to injuries caused by deconditioning.

Helping hospitals make the case for physical activity

Moving Medicine has created a comprehensive toolkit of resources to support senior hospital administrators to take the steps necessary to become an Active Hospital.

Making a start – a guide to using the Active Hospital toolkit

Design – tips on how to conduct your own insight to explore the barriers and enablers to changing behaviours in different settings

Delivery – get inspiration from a range of case studies from a range of healthcare settings

Maintenance – collecting your data, build case studies, and share it with wider networks to create a greater body of learning

Business Case – a sample business case template and links to the NHS Long Term plan to help you build the case with your trust and clinical commissioning group

Resources – a bank of posters, templates, and leaflets to help plan and deliver your Active Hospital approach
