Some key findings include:

  • Increase the proportion of patients that undertook 1 X 30 min bout of moderate to vigorous physical activity from 30% to 90.5%.

  • Perceptions of Quality of Life improved throughout the first three months (During the free 12 wk intervention).

  • Health status improved on average from 65-75 and remained significantly higher at 12 months than it did at baseline.

  • 93% chance that the intervention is cost saving and a 99% chance that it improves health.

  • When considered together there is a 99% chance that it is cost effective at a threshold of £20,000 per QALY gained.

  • As a result of Active for Health, professionals across the health care system endorsed the programme and the promotion of physical activity.

  • Not measured in the report, but 98% of people improved their fitness level from baseline to 12 weeks attending one session per week.  This highlights a significant behavioural change within the other six days of the week which positively impacted upon their health and fitness due to this positive lifestyle change.

  • All pathways were condition specific referral, linked to primary care and delivered by Level 4 Exercise Specialists (Affiliated to the Register of Exercise Specialists) as recommended by NICE Guidance.
