Health secretary Jeremy Hunt has been revealed as the headline speaker for the ukactive’s National Summit 2018.

He is expected to use his appearance at the event – described by ukactive as a "landmark moment for the sector" – to share his vision on the role of physical activity in supporting the National Health Service.

The National Summit will take place at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London on 12 September.

This year, the annual summit will move from plotting the role of physical activity as the "golden thread" in solving society’s greatest challenges, to a focus on delivery – as part of ukactive’s work to make 2018-19 a "year of action".

The summit will also explore opportunities in the UK’s devolved countries, regions and administrations; and the role of the sector in preventing crime and supporting the rehabilitation of offenders.
