Exercise Referral Schemes are specially designed for healthcare professionals to recommend their patients to an exercise programme in order to support their health and wellbeing and quality of life. The services are provided by a number of leisure centres in Devon and operate through qualified instructors who design and work through a personalised programme of exercise with the patient. A programme will normally include an initial one-to-one consultation, followed by a 12 - 16 week programme. The services are paid for by the patient, although many leisure providers offer the services as part of a membership scheme or offer concessionary rates.
To be referred on to these services speak to your GP, Nurse, Physiotherapist or Healthcare Assistant. For more details on Exercise Referral Schemes in Devon click on the link.
