GP Referral Scheme Information
At your Assessment Appointment you will need to complete a medical questionnaire and take part in an initial assessment. This assessment will involve cycling on an exercise bike or walking on a treadmill, so please wear loose comfortable clothing and soft soled shoes or trainers.
Our expert instructors will put together a personalised exercise programme which is based upon the results of your assessment and the reason for your referral.
Your programme will include 4 months membership to the fitness suite and swimming pool. The membership gives you the chance to exercise at your convenience or with other people on the scheme whilst supervised by the instructor (currently Fridays 9am-10am). You will be issued with an attendance sheet to record what you have achieved in each session and your attendance. At the end of the four months you will have another appointment your instructor, who will talk through your options to continue to exercise with us.
