Your exercise referral instructor will talk to you about the most suitable exercise for your medical condition; ranging from a tailored gym programme to specialist rehabilitation sessions, as well as suitable workout classes and swimming - we’ll help find an activity that you enjoy.

What happens at the consultation?
