Activity Referral

What is it and what does it do?

Rivers’ Activity Referral programme is aimed at treating people who are experiencing:

This is a joint project between Wychavon Leisure and Bromsgrove District Council. We work with local GP’s and Health Professionals who refer patients to a 12 week programme run by qualified exercise and health professionals based at Rivers’ Leisure centres.


The Programme

This is a 6 week programme that allows full access to the gym facilities.  You are assigned a gym programme to meet your Exercise Prescription that is designed to take into account your health conditions and medication.

You can meet with a member of the team once a week to have your progress monitored and any changes you feel necessary addressed and there is signposting available at the end to make sure your new healthy lifestyle can continue either at our facility or in the community.

What are the benefits?
  • To motivate people into changing their lifestyle to include an increase in physical activity and a healthy diet
  • To improve mobility, mental health and well being
  • To make new friends
What can be done afterwards?

Once the course has finished the participants are encouraged to continue with their lifestyle improvements, Rivers offer a wide range of activities to suit all needs including swimming and exercise classes. For more information on what we have to offer please browse our website.


Please remember your GP, practice nurse or community health professional need to refer you to this programme. For more information about the programme and for course dates please contact the Fitness Manager Nigel Grundy:
