A Healthcare professional can refer a patient onto a programme of fitness and wellbeing, under the Fitter Futures Warwickshire Referral Scheme.
The Fitter Futures Warwickshire Referral Scheme is a chance for those who are less active and suffer from mild/moderate health conditions or who are in rehabilitation; to become more involved in physical activity; and also get nutritional and health living advice.
The exercise referral scheme consists of a 12 week personalised programme for each individual at a leisure provider or with a Physical Activity Consultant (PAC).
To be eligible for the Fitter Futures scheme you must have be referred by a Health Professional.
This comprehensive 12 week service begins with the initial consultation and fitness assessments to ascertain your needs. This is individual to you and carried out in your home by the qualified PAC.
A suitable programme is then tailored to suit your physical activity needs. A thorough induction is then completed. The programme and fitness tests are then reviewed every 4 - 6 weeks with programme updates if needed. PAC work either with a mobile gym at your home, or in a suitable leisure facility convenient to you.
NBLT manage Empire Gym & Studios and Empire Heaven, where referral patients are welcome to train and be supported by a PAC
Following the 12 week programme the Physical Activity Consultant will help you gain access to a sustainable form of exercise, to ensure you carry on with a fitter future!
