Being physically active is one of the best things we can do for our physical and mental wellbeing. This is all the more important during the COVID-19 pandemic, as evidence suggests that regular physical activity can help maintain or enhance our mood and our immune response. These new resources to support young people and children with health conditions to be active are therefore very timely, and I hope that healthcare professionals will find them valuable.

Minister of Public Health, Sport and Wellbeing, Joe FitzPatrick

These new resources provide us with an excellent opportunity to promote the wide-ranging benefits of physical activity to our children and young people. We know that in these particularly challenging times with the current pandemic it is even more important to keep moving and keep active in as many aspects of daily life as possible.

Chief Executive of sportscotland, Stewart Harris

Moving Medicine is the single most important advance in therapeutics in my 50 years in medicine. The benefit to harm ratio is outstandingly favourable and every drug or psychological prescription for a long-term condition should be partnered by a Moving Medicine prescription of activity.

Muir Gray Kt CBE DSc MD

Moving Medicine will ensure that all health care professionals have up to date information on physical activity presented in a useable, easy to understand format, enabling them to inform their patients and motivate them to become more active.
