GP REFERRAL SCHEME
If you have a medical condition, physical or mental, and want to become more active and lead a healthier lifestyle, our established GP Referral Scheme can help you.
Our experienced and well-qualified staff work in partnership with local GP surgeries to help you find the fitness plan to suit your lifestyle. Over the years, we have helped thousands of people.
To be referred onto the scheme, you must first make an appointment with your GP. If they decide that the scheme may help your medical condition(s), you will be invited to attend an initial appointment at one of our leisure centres with a fully qualified member of staff.
The scheme offers group supervised exercise classes, gym sessions and other activities such as racquet sports. The GP Referral team at the leisure centre will help you to choose activities that are safe and enjoyable. They will offer you support and encouragement over a period of 12 weeks as you work towards achieving your goals.
