GP Referral at hailsham leisure centre

Freedom leisure offer a range of rehabilitation and specialised programmes to meet your needs.

gp referral

 The programme consists of 20 exercise sessions over a 10 week period. Sessions can be used either in the gym, on selected GP referral classes or in the swimming pool.

Your first session will be a friendly introduction to our gym. One of our specially trained instructors will aim to find out a little bit more about you and your goals. We will then be able to design a fitness programme based on your current fitness levels whilst taking into account your referral needs.

Our aim is to get more people enjoying a healthier, more active lifestyle. Once you have completed the referral programme we are dedicated to helping you keep active and to achieve your goals. We offer lots of different membership options, or you can come in as a casual user or take out our Health membership for up to 12 months.

The referral programme is subsidised by Freedom Leisure allowing us to offer excellent value of money. You can either pay all in one go or for individual sessions if you want to try it first.

Our trained staff are always available to help you and your eventual goal is to become largely independent and exercise regularly as a matter of habit. Exercise is fun and it is good for you, come along and see the difference it can make!

Please discus your eligibility for our referral scheme with you medical practitioner.
