Exercise Referral Scheme - supporting recovery post COVID-19


How can Guildford Spectrum's Exercise Referral Scheme help you?

COVID-19 has affected people in many ways and for some, the effects have been wide ranging and long-lasting. Guildford Spectrum's Exercise Referral & Weight Management Scheme is now open to all Surrey residents recovering from COVID-19.

Our subsidised, supportive 12-week scheme costs just £75 and includes:

  • Unlimited access to a safe, supervised exercise environment
  • One-to-one contact with an Exercise Referral specialist instructor qualified in working with individuals recovering from COVID-19
  • A personalised activity plan to encourage long-term adherence to physical activity
  • Regular contact and check ins with an Exercise Referral instructor to review your progress on the programme
  • Access to our follow-on Live Well membership including social group exercise classes

At Guildford Spectrum’s Exercise Referral Scheme, we recognise that recovering from COVID can require a higher level of practical and emotional support along the road to recovery. We will support you to manage the impact of being inactive; the loss of your independence; the fear of overdoing it, and the anxiety that comes with experiencing breathlessness.

Additional benefits include:

  • Support around behaviour change
  • Support to identify positives steps that you can make
  • Improved self esteem
  • Improved confidence in being more active
  • Increased independence
  • Reduced stress
  • Better sleep
  • Re-engagement with healthy behaviours
  • Support to take control of your recovery
