GP Referral

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.

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.

Common reasons for referral:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Asthma
  • Circulatory / respiratory diseases
  • Depression and anxiety


In addition to the main GP referral programme, Hillingdon Healthwise also offer specialist programme, Cardiac Phase IV Rehabilitation Classes.
