Exercise groups for patients who have reduced mobility

There are few exercise groups we can refer patients on to once seen by our community service.

The NSC offer some classes but they are too advanced for a lot of our patients.

Ther needs to be some intermediate service between health care and general  public facilities

Why the contribution is important

It follows the goverment strategy that people can take responsibility for their own care and wellbeing and increase their activity levels

This should reduce the overall pressure on the health service due to falls and health related problems due to inactivity

    Exercise groups are a real need on the island to enable people to maintain health and independence.
    Early intervention and encouraging people to take responsibility for their health will give long term gains for them and cost savings for the Department of Health.
