Abstract

Introduction: The Gloucestershire LGM programme was rolled out in early 2011. While the intention was to identify sedentary adults for the prevention and management of chronic disease by supporting them to become more active through a brief intervention, it was recognised over time that the programme did not appear to be a popular option for health referrers or patients, leading to poor patient uptake. In view of this poor patient uptake the evaluation was modified to understand and investigate the reasons for this. Research aims: Aim 1: To explore stakeholder and health professionals’ perceptions of the LGM Physical Activity Care Pathway Gloucestershire (PACPG) project; Aim 2: To explore health trainers and physical activity deliverers’ perceptions of the LGM Physical Activity Care Pathway Gloucestershire (PACPG) project. Results: Two main themes were identified including challenges to implementation and benefits of LGM which helped to explain the nature of the programme’s implementation in Gloucestershire. Recommendations are outlined in the report.
