Abstract IntroductionMore people are living longer with or beyond cancer but they are not necessarily living well. Enabling people to be physically active at all stages of treatment can improve both clinical and quality of life outcomes. The purpose of this publication is to share experiences of running a city-wide physical activity service for individuals living with and beyond cancer. MethodsActive Everyday implemented the Macmillan Physical Activity Behaviour Change Model. Through Active Everyday people affected by cancer are enabled to self-manage their physical activity via specialist advice from trained specialists, and signposting to appropriate physical activity options available locally. Results200 people affected by cancer have been referred to the Active Everyday project, through referrals from health professionals, community workers, and self-referrals. The project collects follow-up data at three and six months. The project team have encountered issues with regular referrals, engaging people from BME backgrounds, and collecting follow-up data. ConclusionsImplementation of a community based city-wide physical activity pathway may have different challenges than trials based on clinical or primary care pathways. The complexity of a person's journey through cancer treatment poses a number of challenges to the successful implementation of a referral model. Where possible, the impact of new strategies should be measured, and referral successes and challenges should be shared with those planning similar pathways.
