GP Exercise Referral Scheme

You will be invited to attend a weekly exercise session at the venue closest to you. Prior to that first session, you will be met at reception and be shown round the centre. The scheme will be explained further and you will be asked to complete the necessary questionnaires. A trained fitness instructor will then design a 12 week exercise programme for you that is both fun and meets your health requirements. After 12 weeks you will discuss your progress with the GP Referral Co-ordinator, who will report back to your doctor or practice nurse. If you still require further assistance you may be referred for a further 15 weeks. If you are not referred for a further amount of time you will be given the option of joining Fitness Plus as a member, for a reduced rate of £23 per month. The Fitness Plus membership allows unlimited use of the fitness suite, exercise classes and public swimming. Please note this is only available at Hinckley Leisure Centre.

If you are interested in taking part in regular activity then make an appointment to see your doctor or practice nurse. They will then recommend you to start the scheme if they feel you would benefit from regular exercise.
