WHAT IS THE GET ACTIVE EXERCISE REFERRAL PROGRAMME?

The Get Active programme has been designed to offer a structured health and wellbeing programme for adults in Southampton who meet certain referral criteria. These criteria are:

  • You do less than 30 minutes of activity which leaves you out of breath, five times per week.
  • You have a medical condition.

WHAT DOES THE PROGRAMME OFFER?

The programme offers you structured guidance to allow you to begin a suitable activity programme whilst thinking about healthy lifestyle changes. We will also give advice on how to exercise safely and offer you any other advice that you might need. 


WHO CAN REFER TO THE PROGRAMME?

You can either self-refer onto the programme, be referred by somebody on your behalf or be referred by a Health Professional such as:

  • GP
  • Physiotherapist
  • Practice Nurse
  • Health Practitioner

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE REGISTRATION APPOINTMENT?

You will receive a tailored plan which could include access to Active Nation facilities or we may signpost you to activity programmes within the wider community.

We will then follow up with you during the programme at 6 and 12 weeks to offer further support if you need it.


ARE THERE ANY COSTS?

There is the option of a purchasing an Active Nation subscription at the price of £50 for 12 weeks or alternatively by direct debit at a cost of £20 per month for 3 months.  This will enable the participant to try the gym, swimming or classes deemed suitable on our current timetable at The Quays, Bitterne or Chamberlayne Leisure Centres.  Sessions such as Hydro Aqua are NOT included in this subscription.


IS THERE ANY OTHER ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA?

Yes - you must live in Southampton or be registered at a Southampton GP Surgery. If you aren’t eligible we will direct you to other services.
