What is the GP Referral Scheme

- September 20th, 2016

The aim of the Body, Mind and Soul GP scheme is to ‘increase long term involvement in physical activity by prescribing participation in a guided programme of physical activity, with a view to reducing a varied range of medical conditions.

After an initial consultation with a GP, a patient that fulfils established referral criteria will be taken onto the exercise referral scheme. Once a patient is referred, they will meet with our qualified GP exercise professional, Kathryn Ripley for an in depth consultation regarding their personal health status. An exercise programme is then formulated to meet the patients individual and personal needs. The programme lasts for 12 weeks and progress is monitored during this time.

All necessary paperwork for this GP Referral Scheme is available from VVV and can be provided to any health practitioner who would like to start referring their patients to exercise.

This includes the 1.0 Client Contract, 1.1 Consent Form and 1.3 Referral Form and must be completed by the health practitioner for the patient to be referred onto the scheme.
