Physical Activity Prescriptions

PAPs summary information for 2021-2022, showing breakdown by site, SIMD, referrer, age group, primary referral reason, main outcome, and monthly PAPs received


In partnership with NHS Lanarkshire, SLLC’s  ‘Physical Activity Prescription’ (PAP) is a partnership referral pathway. It enables GPs, practice nurses, physiotherapists and wider allied health professionals to refer patients who would benefit from being more physically active. The benefits can be both physical and psychological.

In 2021/2022 SLLC received 2378 referrals. Mental Health was the number one reason for referral in 2021/2022, closely followed by musculoskeletal, general fitness and weight loss. Residents from SIMD 1&2 make up 56% of those referred.

SLLC and our NHS partners will continue to develop this pathway further to achieve improving health outcomes and reducing health inequalities for South Lanarkshire residents.
