The Active Medicine programme (AMP) started out as a collaborative learning and innovation project, funded for two years (Sep 19-Sep 21) by Sport England, and delivered in partnership by Get Berkshire Active, Active Oxfordshire, and Leap. The pilot and evaluation phase focused mainly on upskilling health and social care workforces with the knowledge, skills and confidence to promote physical activity, but have since evolved to encapsulate three elements: education, resources, and support. The programme continues to be delivered across Berkshire, Oxfordshire, and Buckinghamshire (BOB) by the core partners: Get Berkshire Active, Leap, and Active Oxfordshire.
