WHAT IS THE GET ACTIVE EXERCISE REFERRAL PROGRAMME?

The Get Active programme has been designed to offer a structured health & 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 support which will allow you to begin a suitable activity programme whilst thinking about healthy lifestyle changes. We will also give advise 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 to 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?

You will receive a tailored plan which could include access to our Active Nutrition portal, our facilities and classes or we might signpost you to activity programmes within the wider community. We will then follow up with you during the programme and your programme could be extended if you would like some further support.


ARE THERE ANY COSTS?

The cost of the initial registration is £8.60 – this is the same as a NHS prescription. This cost is waived if you are entitled to free NHS prescriptions.


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.
