Active Health

A physical activity referral is an exercise programme that your GP or healthcare professional can refer you to at your local leisure centre - an Active Health membership includes an initial consultation where a trained exercise professional will tailor a programme to your needs, to help you become more active.

  • you will receive a one-to-one consultation initially, followed by regular email or telephone contact and reviews at both six and 12 weeks
  • we will work with you to set goals and monitor progress to help you get the best from your chosen activity
  • after your 12 week review we will encourage you to exercise independently but you will still benefit from the concessionary pricing structure
  • throughout the programme, activities within our leisure centres will be charged at a concessionary rate
