Your Borough Of Poole

Exercise Referral Scheme Changes

As of 1st April 2014 The Active 3x30 Exercise Referral Scheme will cease to be administered by Borough of Poole. Instead General Practitioners and referring organisations will be able to send patient referrals directly to the 2 participating leisure centres using the contact details below;

Everyone Active: Rossmore     

Herbert Avenue, Parkstone, Poole, Dorset, BH12 4HR

Telephone: 01202 738787

The Junction Sports & Leisure Centre

Station Approach, Broadstone, Dorset, BH18 8AX

Telephone: 01202 777766

Both centres Exercise Referral Schemes will provides patients with discounted access to a wide range of activities for a 12 week period. Patients will be given an exercise plan designed by an Exercise Referral qualified Fitness Instructor, which will aim to improve their health and/or aid weight loss.

All patients are required to attend an Initial Assessment at week 1, followed by a Review Assessment at week 12, in order to measure their progress. Patients will also be given ongoing support to help them increase their weekly activity levels.

How do I join the scheme?

Your GP will be able to refer you to the centre of your choice, and you will then be contacted by the centre to invite you to book your Initial Assessment. 

Patients who elect to exercise with Everyone Active will have to attend an Initial Assessment at Everyone Active: Rossmore, but can exercise at all 3 Everyone Active Centres following the Initial Assessment.

How much does it cost?

You will be charged a £10 administration fee which entitles you to an Initial Assessment and a Review Assessment with a member of the Exercise Referral Team. The administration fee does not apply to anyone who holds a valid Access to Leisure & Learning card.

Attendance at all subsequent activity sessions are offered at a heavily discounted rate.

What physical activity sessions are available?

After you have attended your Initial Assessment you will be able to access a wide range of activities both within the leisure centre and the community setting.
