Health Classes will be coming as part of our next phase to reopening.

 

Simon Stevens, CEO of the NHS has been quoted saying that ‘physical activity is a miracle cure, no other medication or drug prevents and cures more conditions’. Our extensive Health Referral Schemes prevent, maintain and cure illness, injury and mental health conditions.

This vital resource for our community is accessible through GP’s, Physiotherapists, self-referral and other health professionals.  Our fully qualified and experienced team deliver specific group sessions for a number of interventions to help local people exercise under qualified guidance whilst also benefiting from social interaction with people in a similar situation. These sessions have proved invaluable for these patient’s wellbeing and helps relieve strain on our NHS.

All patients eligible for any of our health referral schemes will be recommended to join a 12 week programme. Before your programme begins you will be required to attend a consultation with one of our health professionals. This is to go over your medical history and to sign you up fully to our programme.

As our schemes are subsidised by us as a charity we do have a minimal charge towards the running of these sessions. Sometimes funders will contribute towards these sessions where we can allow for ‘sponsored’ patients to allow to join the scheme for free. Please contact us to find out more.
