The project aims to tackle health inequalities faced by patients and deliver bespoke exercise plans which ensure they can get fitter and lose weight safely.

Long term conditions which the project supports include: anxiety, asthma, back pain, cardiac rehabilitation, COPD, depression, diabetes, hypercholesterolaemia, hypertension, joint replacement, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, stable angina, weight management and stress.

Sample exercise plans for each named condition are available to download below.

Patients with a BMI of 30 and over (or 27.5 and over if you are of South Asian origin) are able to join the project for six months, free of charge, and will receive targeted advice, plans and access to sessions from our qualified staff.
