Exercise referral and falls prevention

The Elmbridge  GP referral scheme is run by Places Leisure on behalf of Elmbridge Borough Council at the Xcel Leisure Complex, Walton-on-Thames under COVID-secure conditions.

How can the exercise referral scheme help you?

 Exercise has been shown to:

  • reduce the risk of heart disease and osteoporosis

  • manage weight, diabetes and depression

  • lower blood pressure, cholesterol and stress levels

  • increase muscle strength and joint flexibility

  • improve self esteem and general mood

How to join the scheme

You can be referred via your GP, consultant, physio or medical practitioner. For a self referral you will need to ask your GP to fill out a referral form.

Please call the Xcel Leisure Complex on 01932 260300 in advance to book your exercise or gym sessions.
