exercise referral

Exercise referral schemes are designed to help people who would benefit from regular exercise. Physical activity can play an important role in preventing and managing health conditions such as; coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, mental health problems, musculoskeletal conditions and some cancers. It also has a positive effect on wellbeing and mood, providing a sense of achievement or relaxation and release from daily stress.

Our instructors are all highly experienced, we have level 3 GP referral instructors, and specialised BACPR cardiac rehabilitation instructors in our team. To be referred to us you will need a referral form, which can be completed by health professionals and medical providers. If you feel that you could benefit from our exercise referral scheme, contact us today and discuss your options with one of our instructors.

Phase IV is a structured programme of exercise that follows on from hospital rehabilitation. It is an exercise and education programme for people recovering from heart attacks, heart surgery and cardiac interventions. The classes are led by highly qualified and knowledgable BACPR cardiac rehabilitation instructors. It can increase fitness levels, reduce cardiac symptoms, improve health and reduce the risk of future heart problems.

Initially a meeting will be arranged with one of our cardiac referral instructors. An initial assessment and screening will be completed and an appropriate rehabilitation programme discussed.

Our Cardiac referral sessions are held at Bersted Park Community Centre:
