Are you involved with an Exercise Referral Scheme?


If you are then we’d love to hear from you.

In 2010, the former BHF National Centre for Physical Activity and Health published a toolkit for the design, implementation and evaluation of exercise referral schemes. The Exercise Referral Toolkit consisted of a number of practical guidance documents for professionals involved in the delivery, co-ordination, commissioning and evaluation of exercise referral schemes.

The public health and policy landscape has changed significantly since 2010, and we are now considering updating the toolkit and exploring the possibility of introducing an Exercise Referral Accreditation Scheme.

To help us make an informed decision whether or not to update the Exercise Referral Toolkit we are seeking feedback from professionals who have an interest in this area.

We are interested in gathering feedback about the existing Exercise Referral Toolkit from those professionals who have used it, as well as those working in exercise referral who have never used it.

If you would like to help shape how we proceed with this piece of work please click on the link below to complete our short questionnaire. The questionnaire will take around ten minutes to complete and will close on Friday 25th August.


We would be most grateful if you could forward this email on to any colleagues who you think may be interested in this work.
