What is Exercise Referral?
An Exercise Referral is a specific and formalised programme whereby a medical professional refers a patient to a fitness programme often based within the community. It is not the same as a 'recommendation' to exercise. A formal agreement will exist between the referrer and the exercise project.
Everyone can benefit from Physical Activity. Being physical activity regularly is great for your health.
The Recommended amount of physical activity adults should complete is 150 minutes each week.
