Gp Referral: What is it?
It provides a safe pathway for people with various medical conditions to become more active and improve health and well being . It provides a route whereby Gp’s can refer appropriate patients for exercise in a safe and supervised environment.
Each client has access to a 12 wk programme with an assessment at weeks 1/6/ and 12. The programme is individually tailored according to ability and involves individual and group sessions and activities that are home based and in the community. On completion of the 12 weeks patients are re-assessed both in terms of physical and health improvements. A full report and patient progress is sent to the referring Gp at the end of the programme. Long term follow up is maintained by regional co-ordinators at 6/12 and 24 months.
The National protocols, procedures and resources ensure that there is a clear pathway for Gp’s to refer to and that staff receiving the referrals are suitably qualified. Only leisure facilities who have under gone HSE training, relative to Gp referral are eligible to deliver the programme.
Please ask your GP about the programme and to refer you.
