National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine
Focused on the design, implementation and evaluation of whole-system approaches to increasing physical activity across the population.
The National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine is an Olympic legacy project delivering research, education and clinical services in sport, exercise and physical activity from three hubs across England, of which Sheffield is one.
NCSEM Sheffield is focused on the design, implementation and evaluation of whole-system approaches to increasing physical activity across the population.
At the heart of the project is Move More, an evidence-based, city-wide public health programme, which aims to re-engineer physical activity back into daily life through meaningful changes to the physical and social environment of a city, including communities, schools, workplaces and transport infrastructure.
The work of NCSEM Sheffield also includes the development of physical activity pathways within the NHS. An innovative hub and spoke capital model co-locates patients, researchers, clinicians, sport and exercise medicine specialists and public health professionals, and adopts user-centered healthcare design principles to co-produce new models of care with patients and stakeholders.
