Wider sector support...
Huw Edwards, CEO, UK Active
Today’s pressures on our NHS and wider health systems underline exactly why physical activity has such an essential role to play in our nation’s health and wellbeing, both now and in future.
Ensuring that clinical exercise physiologists are professionally registered is an important step towards creating workforce capacity and professional standards that will help integrate the fitness and leisure sector into healthcare pathways such as social prescribing, community prehabilitation and rehabilitation, and exercise prescription.
Steve Aspinall, Chief Executive, BASRaT
Registration for Clinical Exercise Physiologists is another fantastic step forwards for the UK healthcare landscape; accredited registers with standards of education and regulation that can be considered as commensurate with the traditional statutory regulators are an invaluable resource across all UK public health and healthcare settings. They also offer an agile and right-touch approach to regulation, giving further confidence to commissioners and members of the public.
Dariel Burdass, Chief Executive,
The Physiological Society
Physical activity is an important factor in staying healthy and resilient and having registered Clinical Exercise Physiologists who are recognised as part of the allied health profession in the UK is important as it will improve standards of practice in exercise research, improve reproducibility and ultimately improve health outcomes for patients. The Society is fully supportive of this development.
