Arthritis Research UK joined the Responsibility Deal in August 2012 and is supporting the communication and promotion of the Chief Medical Officers (CMO) revised physical activity guidelines in a number of ways.Internally, the charity is conducting a health and wellbeing survey of employees. This survey seeks to identify peoples exercise patterns and what their general health and wellbeing is. The analysis of the results will inform the design of the charitys health and wellbeing benefits package to employees. The charity will place the CMOs guidelines on its intranet with a supporting article.Arthritis Research UK is committed to enabling people with arthritis to remain active, doing the things they love. It has a number of webpages devoted to information about the importance of appropriate physical activity for people with musculoskeletal conditions and will be uploading the CMOs guidelines to sit alongside these. To facilitate communication of these guidelines, we will run an article about the charity joining the Responsibility Deal and its support of the CMOs physical activity guidelines in the charitys consumer facing magazine Arthritis Today.
