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.

Our Make your Move flyers below provides practical steps and ideas to support you to move more.

Who can be referred?

Exercise Referral is suitable for anyone aged 16 years and over who are currently inactive and living with a health condition who would like support in becoming more physically active.

How can I be referred?

If you feel that you would benefit from the scheme, speak to your GP/Practice Nurse/Health professional about being referred. Your GP or practice nurse will complete a referral form which will be sent to your local coordinator who will get in touch with you.

What activities can I do?

There are a wide range of activities both gym and class based, as well as aquatic, walking, running, and cycling opportunities to choose from. All the activities you take part in will be tailored to your needs and goals.
