Brighton and Hove City Teaching Primary Care Trust (PCT) and the city council are trying to persuade more people in Brighton and Hove to exercise by preparing a new sport and physical activity strategy for the city.
The aim is to help people stay healthier for longer and, as a consequence, save money for an increasingly overstretched health service.
People are being asked to take part in a 10 minute survey to find out what people like and dislike about sport and physical activity facilities and what would help them to do more physical activity. People completing the survey will be entered into a prize draw for three-month membership at a local gym.
Although the government’s chief medical officer recommends that all adults undertake at least 150 minutes of activity a week, even doing as little as 15 minutes a day is associated with some protection against chronic disease together with improved quality of life.
The survey can be found by visiting www.tinyurl.com/spactivity, emailing email@example.com or calling 01273 292724 to request a hard copy.
