The General Practice Physical Activity Questionnaire is intended for use in adults (16 - 74) years in routine general practice to provide a simple, 4-level Physical Activity Index (PAI) reflecting an individual's current physical activity. The index can be cross-referred to Read codes for physical activity and can be used to help inform the decision as to when interventions to increase physical activity might be appropriate.
