What is Healthwise?
Our physical activity on referral programme provides support and guidance to help inactive people, at risk of disease or suffering with a condition that can be improved by physical activity, to make long term lifestyle changes to increase their activity in a safe and enjoyable way.
The programme delivers individually tailored physical activity opportunities and group-based activities. These activities are designed to support eligible adults to become physically active and gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to maintain and improve their physical activity levels.
The programme lasts 12 weeks and is delivered by our team of highly trained exercise professionals, who place particular focus on behaviour change, self-management and long-term adherence.
All patients will receive an individually tailored physical activity programme, which is developed in partnership with the participant and meets their specific needs. Activity options include, but are not limited to:
- Supervised gym sessions
- Group exercise classes
- Water based exercise
- Social sport options
- Healthy walks
- Home programme
