Active health in Wiltshire

14th November 2019, 5:23pm | By Karen |

Physical activity referral is an exercise programme that your GP or healthcare professional can refer you to. An Active Health membership is for 12 months from initial consultation and a trained exercise professional will devise a programme that is suitable for you to help you become more active. You will receive a one-to-one consultation initially, followed by regular email or telephone contact and reviews at both 6 and 12 weeks. We will work with you to set goals and monitor progress to help you get the best from your chosen activity. Throughout the programme, activities within our leisure centres will be charged at a concessionary rate. After your 12 week review we will encourage you to exercise independently but you will still benefit from the concessionary pricing structure.

As part of the programme you may take part in a range of activities either at a leisure centre, in the local community, or in an outdoor setting. This could include activities such as gym sessions, swimming, walking groups, or specialist exercise groups and classes. Please see our programme leaflets in the useful information section for more information on specific classes offered under the Active Health GP referral scheme.
