Active 4 Health GP Referral Scheme at Two Riversmeet Leisure Complex




Get Active For Your Health

Exercise can help manage, improve or reduce the risk of developing many health conditions. 

We run an Active 4 Health exercise referral programme that lasts for 12 weeks. If you have a condition that affects your health and wellbeing, you could be referred to us by a health professional (i.e. GP, nurse, physio).

Agree a programme with your Lifestyle Co-ordinator with consultations to review your progress and you will benefit from regular exercise opportunities from classes to subsidised gym use. 

After your programme, you will continue to be supported and signposted to suitable opportunities to help you maintain your new, active lifestyle. 

How it works

Request a referral from your health practitioner e.g. GP or Physio:

  1. Lifestyle Coordinator makes contact to agree your exercise pathway
  2. 4, 8 and 12 week consultations to review your progression
  3. Regular exercise opportunities from classes to subsidised gym and swim use
  4. Contact with Lifestyle Coordinator again at 12 weeks, 6 months and 12 months to support your new healthy lifestyle
