The Physical Activity Clinical Champions (PACC) programme is a network of practicing healthcare professionals who provide training to other healthcare practitioners. The programme is developed and supported by Public Health England.
The PACC is part of the wider “Moving Healthcare Professionals” programme set up by Public Health England and Sport England. It provides practicing healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills to incorporate physical activity into their everyday practice.
The Clinical Champions are regionally based. They provide free training sessions, which include information on the current physical activity guidelines. They also provide practical tips and advice on how to use physical activity within clinical practice.
Training includes information on national campaigns like Sport England’s ‘We are UndefeatABLE’. It also includes information on opportunities in the local area that healthcare professionals may be able to link patients into.
