Exercise Referral

Exercise Referral is a 12-week programme for adults aged 18 plus with a medical condition that would benefit from exercise.

The programme provides guidance and support for individuals becoming more active. It aims to increase fitness levels which can result in improved quality of life and can reduce the need for medication. Participants can attend as frequently as they wish, and will be offered a range of options including gym, swim and classes, according to their preference and the venue.

There are many conditions that an individual can be referred for, including:

Case Study: Jim Barley

 Jim Barley - Exercise Referral “My wellbeing, confidence and general quality of life has greatly improved, and as a bonus my fitness levels have increased.”I noticed that as I was getting older everything took more effort, so I asked my doctor and he agreed to make a referral. Going to the gym twice a week has given me back a little bit of independence, helped to raise my self-esteem, and allows me to have some quality time to myself.
