In partnership with Derby City North PCN (Primary Care Network), our Health and Wellbeing programme aims to help patients with long term health conditions to lead more active lifestyles.
The GP surgeries involved are Osmaston Surgery, Wilson Street, Macklin Street, Horizon Healthcare, Friar Gate Surgery and Derwent Medical Centre. The project is exclusively for registered patients of these surgeries.
The project aims to tackle health inequalities faced by patients and deliver bespoke exercise plans which ensure they can get fitter and lose weight safely.
Long term conditions which the project supports include: anxiety, asthma, back pain, cardiac rehabilitation, COPD, depression, diabetes, hypercholesterolaemia, hypertension, joint replacement, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, stable angina, weight management and stress.
Sample exercise plans for each named condition are available to download below.
A targeted weight management programme for 14-17 year olds who are on the 85th centile or above is also available. You can find out more about LiveIT here.
Patients with a BMI of 30 and over (or 27.5 and over if you are of South Asian origin) are able to join the project for six months, free of charge, and will receive targeted advice, plans and access to sessions from our qualified staff.
If you have received a text from your GP about this service please complete the registration form below and we will make contact with you.
