 Details The ProAct65+ trial of exercise promotion for people aged 65 and over is the largest such trial ever mounted in primary care. Over 1200 older people have been recruited in London, Nottingham and Derby to a three arm study comparing two different types of exercise with 'normal care'.

The presentation will outline the trial, describe the characteristics of those recruited through group practices in London, and invite speculation about what might be the likely benefits from the interventions.
