gp referral

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 exercise referral scheme runs for a 12 week period, after which we will provide options for you to continue your exercise with us and support your on-going health and wellbeing.

To join the scheme you will need a referral from a qualified medical professional (i.e physiotherapist, GP).

Once you have a referral, please contact Arun Leisure Centre on 01243 826612 to discuss prices and to arrange your initial assessment. One of our Level 3 GP referral Instructors will carry out basic health and wellbeing assessments in order to establish an appropriate exercise programme for you.

There will be options to have a programme set in our gym at Arun Leisure Centre, or you may prefer to join our established GP referral exercise groups right here at Bersted park to benefit from instructor led sessions.
