Everyone living with cancer, and other long-term conditions, as well as professionals and those commissioning services, should be aware of how exercise might be beneficial to them.

We have launched a new Physical Activity webpage for professionals. Here you’ll find information about Macmillan’s free online training, evidence, insight and physical activity guidelines for people with cancer.

There are also resources to help you when recommending physical activity to your patients, and to influence those commissioning, reviewing or providing services.
