Exercise Referral Scheme
The Exercise Referral Scheme has been helping people become fitter and more active for more than twenty years.
The scheme is run by Huntingdonshire District Council in partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council Public Health Team to help improve the health of the community and promote active healthy lifestyles.
Exercise Referral is suitable for anyone who will benefit from exercise to help in the rehabilitation, treatment and prevention of certain medical conditions.
For example: • Heart Conditions • Diabetes (Type 1 & 2) • Depression/Anxiety • High Blood Pressure • Obesity (BMI > 30) • Asthma • Cancer • Musculo-skeletal (including arthritis)
You can benefit from a personalised 12 week programme. The programmes are designed to meet individual needs and may include gym based exercises, walking, swimming, exercise classes, cycling and other activities.
Please speak to one of our Doctors if you are interested in this scheme.
