What is Exercise Referral?

Exercise referral is when a medical professional refers the patient to an exercise programme.

An Exercise Referral is a specific and formalised programme whereby a medical professional refers a patient to a fitness programme often based within the community. It is not the same as a 'recommendation' to exercise. A formal agreement will exist between the referrer and the exercise project.
