The Penzance GP Referral Scheme (GPRS) is a 6 month programme divided into 3 eight week segments of programmed physical activity.
How the scheme works
Many people with health concerns are unsure about what physical activity they can do safely. The scheme provides the opportunity for you to receive advice and support from our specialist and advance Health and Fitness Team.
The Scheme is run from the Penzance Leisure Centre with sessions every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1.00-2.30pm.
The sixth month programme is divided into three eight week segments of physical activity.
Following an initial assessment and baseline health check an agreed individual programme of physical activity sessions is set for you. The programme includes the use of the gym and the swimming pool during the general open sessions (check the opening times with the leisure centre). You will be encouraged to use the facilities and start exercising on your own, with friends or family, as well as attending the set supervised sessions.
How can I be referred?
If you are currently seeing a Health Professionl (GP, nurse, physiotherapist) they will be able to determine if you are eligible for the scheme. If the Health Professional is unaware of the scheme, contact Penzance Leisure Centre who will forward you the appropriate referral form. Contact Telephone: 01736 874744
Alternatively, you can contact the Leisure Centre yourself or contact Karen for more details.
