Health and active referral scheme

About the exercise referral scheme

Walkway to the new leisure centre

Exercise referral is 12 week programme of personalised physical activity support for people with specific health conditions.

Qualified exercise professionals create a safe and effective physical activity programme tailored to the participant's needs and goals.

Exercise referral is available to people aged 16 years and over with an existing health condition that could be improved by physical activity.

How the scheme works

If during a visit to your health professional you are offered the opportunity to exercise on referral, they will submit a referral form to the exercise referral coordinator. 

According to where you live, your referral will be sent to one of our exercise referral instructors to contact you to discuss your needs. They will then invite you along either to Hinckley Leisure Centre or Sport in Desford for an induction to the gym. There is a small charge for attending the sessions.

What happens after 12 weeks

After 12 weeks, your instructor will discuss with you what options are available to you, whether that is taking out membership at either of the gym locations or accessing other activity offerings.
