Interim results

To date there have been 1062 patients engaged (2015–2017), completing 13,407 visits.

Self-reported physical activity levels were measured using IPAQ, with an increase in moderate activity from baseline (166.33) to 3 months (283.75). QALY has shown a significant improvement (p < 0.05) from 0.6761 at baseline to 0.7598 at 12 months. The programme aims to revolutionise the role that physical activity plays in rehabilitation and recovery, by providing safe, effective and quality assured services in local communities, resulting in notable improvements in health and well-being.
