About Us

Let's get active!

Active Scotland has been developed by NHS Health Scotland as a tool to support the physical activity workforce, primarily primary care staff and allied health professionals working with patients to answer the question “where do I go to be active?” creating a dataset of national and local physical activity infrastructure, including opportunities and mechanisms of support from the public, private, and voluntary sectors, making this information easy to use and accessible to help the people of Scotland become more active.

All primary and community care staff including doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, dieticians, psychiatric nurses and pharmacy staff play a key role in helping patients to understand the value of physical activity for their health. Active Scotland provides access to local information that will help patients locate social support networks and opportunities to engage in physical activity in their neighbourhood.

Equally, Active Scotland can signpost those working in communities, schools and workplaces to local physical activity opportunities and networks.
