Exercise Referral Scheme
The Scheme aims to increase physical activity levels, improve physical and mental wellbeing and improve the management of medical conditions.
Adults and older adults are advised to aim towards being active for 150 minutes a week, however living with a medical condition can often make this harder. The Exercise Referral scheme supports individuals to slowly build up their movement, have better management of their condition and encourages simple healthier lifestyle choices.
