GP Exercise Referral




Somerset County Council’s Exercise Referral Scheme is specially designed for healthcare professionals to recommend their patients to an exercise programme in order to support their health and wellbeing and quality of life. The services are provided by a number of leisure providers and independent instructors in Somerset and operate through fully qualified staff who design and work through a personalised programme of exercise with the patient.


Following a referral from a Health Professional, the patient will be given the referral form with a list of all accredited leisure providers across Somerset that operate the GP Exercise Referral Scheme. The patient will choose where they would like to attend to undertake the programme, and make contact with the leisure provider themselves to book an initial appointment to launch their referral. 


The services are paid for by the patient, although many leisure providers offer the services as part of a membership scheme or offer concessionary rates.


To be referred onto the GP Exercise Referral Scheme, speak to your GP, Nurse or Physiotherapist.
