Abstract Background:<\b>
Rotherham 'Active for Health' (AFH) is a robust programme of physical activity (PA) interventions and academic evaluation, linking NHS rehabilitation services to community PA. The programme offers LTC specific PA across seven pathways including; stroke, COPD, cancer, falls prevention, MSK, cardiac and heart failure. This pragmatic evaluation will assess the extent that AFH supports and sustains PA levels in people with a LTC. Method: Patient outcome measures were taken at baseline, 3, 6 and 12 months. These included; self-reported PA levels, quality of life (QoL) and NHS service use. Qualitative interviews assessed patient experiences of AFH. The interviews included a semi structured interview based on the Patient Activation Measure (PAM). Process evaluation was captured through semi structured interviews with key stakeholders and capture the feasibility and acceptability of the programme. Project development has been monitored through interviews with all key partners using a logic model at project start, 18 months and 36 months. Results:<\b>
Patients engaged in the evaluation November 2015 - January 2018 include; baseline n = 971, 3 months n = 511, 6 months n = 307 and 12 months n = 121. Stakeholders engaged in the programme evaluation include; local authority, leisure providers and clinicians (n =17). Conclusion:<\b>
AFH offers a promising long term solution for NHS rehabilitation pathways, working collaboratively with exercise professionals. Engagement in AFH by leisure providers and clinicians has been excellent. AFH can be conceptualised to help inform future clinical practice and research in community based rehabilitation. Full results are expected December 2018.
