After the publication in 1999 of the government white paper ‘Saving Lives, Our Healthier Nation’, which highlighted Cancer, CHD, Mental Health and Accidents as the 4 key killers in society VVV made its first steps into providing a range of classes and services aimed at rehab and preventative health care.
The subsequent launch in 2001 of the National Quality Assurance Framework provided guidelines for exercise referral systems, with the aim of improving standards among existing exercise referral schemes, and helping the development of new ones. The Framework focused primarily on the most common model of exercise referral system, where the GP or practice nurse refers patients to facilitates such as leisure centres or gyms for supervised exercise programmes.
Both of these government initiatives led to the setting up of our ‘Simply’ range of classes and ultimately the launch in 2001 of our GP Referral Scheme.
15 years later, and VVV has well over 1,000 patients referred to us by local GP’s and physiotherapists and now runs a series of classes aimed at both rehab and ‘prefab’
Our ‘Simply’ range includes circuits, supervised gym classes, Spinning and Pilates.
Our ‘Wellness’ range cover Chair based exercise, MS society, Breathe Easy (part of the British Lung Foundation’, Knee Rehab, Back Care and Neuro Rehab class run by Physiotherapist, Anna Lamoury.
