Aim of the scheme:
To increase the physical activity levels of inactive adults who are at risk of developing chronic disease to improve and maintain their health and mental well being for the long term.
What is Exercise on Referral?
The Exercise on Referral Scheme provides sedentary individuals and individuals with low risk medical conditions with a positive introduction to being physically active. The introductory exercise programme should enable patients to maintain a physically active lifestyle, without dependence on the exercise professional in the longer term.
Who qualifies for exercise on referral?
The scheme is for adults aged 18 years and over who have existing low risk medical conditions and are
considered to be inactive (not currently participating in at least 30 minutes of moderate activity on 3 or more days of the week). Patients must be local residents to access the scheme.
How does the scheme work?
An assessment is made by a healthcare professional such as a doctor or nurse - they provide you with the referral forms and help you fill them out. You bring these referral forms to us at Oxley Sports Centre where a consultation takes place and a plan of action is made. A qualified instructor then guides you through a 12 week program offering motivation and regular reviews. Swimming and fitness classes may also be advised during your program here at Oxley. After completing the initial program further discounted membership will be offered to you.
Initial 12 weeks - £67.50
Once the first 12 weeks is complete a 3 month membership can be purchased for £85.00.
Following this it is advised that you move onto regular membership.
