RCGP urges GP practices to 'prescribe' 5k runs to patients

Comment

Why is government and public health England not prescribing this for patients through community enterprises. As rightly mentioned above if someone drops dead you are facing the legal battle for suggesting or signing their fitness to participate. We all give lifestyle advice and advice to remain active tailored to the individual patients. Next in line is prescribing healthy food, decent cloths and housing. What next?
