The Move. Eat. Treat. Campaign
Move. Eat. Treat. will function as a movement to focus attention on the issue of lifestyle advice and preventative medicine.
The primary focus of the movement is to co-ordinate a petition and campaign to improve the provision of lifestyle advice teaching to all healthcare professionals at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
The second focus of the organisation is to act as a social enterprise to deliver training to current healthcare professionals on the delivery of effective lifestyle advice to their patients. This will be particularly appealing to General Practitioners who have a financial as well as medical incentive to keep patients healthy and out of hospital. The profit from these sessions will be invested back into “Move. Eat. Treat.” to fund the campaign, provide further teaching and to commission research and policy papers into the area of public health and obesity prevention.
Move. Eat. Treat. hopes to promote the importance of preventative medicine with the aim of eventually developing a healthcare system, which doesn’t wait until patients become ill before it acts, but works to keep the population healthy – a true health service that is proactive and not reactive
