Exercise Referral Scheme

Did you know that the NHS had an Exercise Referral Service?

This is particularly designed for those with conditions that make exercise an important aspect of their “non drug” management. For example, diabetes, hypertension, raised BMI/ weight related issues. The scheme allows your GP to refer you to a sports centre of your choice- locally we have Sandwich, Deal, but the scheme covers Canterbury, Herne Bay and others). For a significantly reduced fee you could be making the most of a local sports centre to help you with a fitness programme for 2017. Please ask at the surgery desk for a leaflet, or see on our website for further details.

Patients may like to consider one or the other of the schemes (or both) above to help support them through any New Years Resolutions (or non New Year Resolutions) in 2019

More on the Exercise Referral Scheme

Ready to get moving?

The Exercise Referral Scheme helps people aged 16 or over to make long-term lifestyle changes and increase their physical activity.

If you have a pre-existing medical condition, or are recovering from an illness or an operation, you might be eligible for our Exercise Referral Scheme.

You will receive a 12-week personal tailored exercise programme. Exercise programmes will be based on the reason for referral, your health status and your personal preferences.

Classes include: Active for Life, Aqua for Life, gym programmes, yoga, pilates and swimming, and we have a range of local providers – just pick the one that suits you!
