Exercise Referral Scheme

Edge Hill Sport has created a 10-week course of exercise specifically aimed to improve a broad range of physical, physiological and psychological medical conditions including, amongst others, angina, diabetes, arthritis, obesity, hypertension, asthma, anxiety and depression. It can also play a key role in assisting post-operative recovery, mobility, insomnia, back pain and weight loss, as well as improving self-esteem and fitness. This can be accessed by Edge Hill University staff members through a referral from Occupational Health. Edge Hill Sport is also able to host some referrals from Cardiac Rehab, Pulmonary Rehab and Cancer Rehab at Ormskirk District General Hospital.

Edge Hill University students can also take advantage of an Active Wellbeing Programme aimed at improving physical and mental wellbeing. This service may be accessed through a referral from Student Wellbeing.

Once a referral has been made, our Qualified REFERRAL PROGRAMME CONSULTANTS, who are fully trained to devise appropriate exercise schedules, will, after a confidential personal assessment, issue a suitable programme of exercise. The exercise programmes are extremely varied and adapted to suit each referral’s health status and individual preferences.

If you feel you, or someone you know, would benefit from a course of exercise on our Exercise Referral Programme, please speak to the appropriate person with regard to the referral you require or one of our Referral Programme Consultants.
