LBBD Healthy Lifestyles and Exercise on Referral Programme
We work closely with the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham on a Healthy Lifestyles and Exercise on Referral Programme. Exercise is proven to help reduce the risk of conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and some cancers. It can also improve mental health.
Exercise on referral is a healthy living and exercise programme to help you improve your fitness and wellbeing. Doctors and other health professionals can refer you onto the scheme if they believe you could improve your existing medical conditions with the take up of physical activity and some changes to your lifestyle. Once accepted you will be invited to an initial one-on-one consultation with a lifestyle coach who will discuss your health needs and goals.
Graduates of the programme are offered discounted leisure centre membership to help continue with their lifestyle change.
