How does it work?

Once on the scheme you will be provided with an initial appointment where your instructor will take you through a step by step guide and support you on your journey to achieve your goals. After your initial appointment is complete you will be booked in for two further appointments; one at three months and one just before you finish the scheme at six months.

How to apply

The scheme is available for referral by GP practices and other healthcare professionals in Leicester and there is no cost for the referral. Ask your doctor for information on how to enrol.

How long does it last?

Currently referrals can stay on the scheme for up to six months. However, cardiac and heart patients differ. 

Please note if you have already been on the scheme once you cannot be re-referred.
