It is a collaboration of universities, healthcare trusts, local authorities and private and voluntary sector organisations, working together to improve the health of the nation – from everyday people at risk of ill health to elite athletes.

Contents

The NCSEM has a depth and breadth of expertise in sport, exercise and physical activity drawn from its partners carrying out world-class and internationally relevant research.

History

The London Olympic and Paralympic games pledged to provide a lasting health legacy tackling the crucial issues currently threatening health budgets, workforce efficiency and the health of the nation. The National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine is a 2012 Olympics Legacy project.

Themes

The NCSEM has five themes; each target a different aspect of the value of physical activity:

Structure

The NCSEM consists of three regional hubs based in the East Midlands, London and Sheffield. In each hub, leading academics and healthcare professionals are brought together to build on existing research in the field of sport and exercise medicine and to facilitate the efficient transfer of research into frontline practice. In London the Institute of Sport Exercise and Health (ISEH) specialises in elite sports performance and sports injury management; in the East Midlands the focus is on a strong and broad research base with the aim of accelerating the translation of knowledge into clinical practice; while Sheffield concentrates on citywide testing of community initiatives to increase physical activity.
