Encourage physical activity- preventative health care

Encourage physical activity- preventative health care

SG should do more to encourage physical activity- as part of a preventative health care strategy. Long term preventative healthcare - would like to see more attention put on that. Obesity for example, access to sport. Lockdown makes it harder to stay healthy. A lot of cities are trying to encourage people to keep walking and cycling more by widening pavements. This should be kept up after pandemic.


Prevention is the way forward - reduces cost to NHS

Physical health has been shown to be hugely important over the course of the pandemic in relation to mortality rates, as a country our record of physical activity is woeful, as is the Scots Govt record in this area, for me as a preventative health measure, its a priority.
