Better’s firm belief that physical activity at appropriate levels can have a beneficial effect upon the health of an individual underpins our commitment to the provision of a GP referral programme across our Centres.

The scheme is run in the following regions:

Working in Partnership with health professionals, we are dedicated to breaking down barriers to physical activity and to tackle health inequalities.

The Better Health Team provide independently tailored opportunities for patients with existing medical conditions to be referred to a specifically designed physical activity programme, at an affordable rate – a programme designed to help them manage and improve their health.

In addition to the main GP referral programme, specialist programmes have been developed to meet the health needs of the local community. These programmes include:

  • Adult Weight Management Courses
  • Cancer Rehabilitation Classes
  • Cardiac Phase III/IV Rehabilitation Classes
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Rehabilitation classes
  • Musculoskeletal Courses

Individuals who are not already active and who have a medical condition may be suitable for referral to this programme. To find out more information or to be referred on to this service, please speak to a Health Professional.
