If exercise were a pill, doctors would prescribe it - and now they're doing just that in Copeland! Following on from the successful GP referral scheme in Northumberland, North Country Leisure (NCL) are now bringing this service to our area.
This partnership between North Country Leisure and NHS Cumbria helps people with medical conditions to be a bit more active and improve their health, through a 15 week programme. The programme helps patients take part in activity at their own level, after an initial assessment to help find out what exercise is best for the individual. There is also support and advice to help patients continue to be active in the longer term.
Would you like to:
- Lose weight
- Feel less stressed and find more energy
- Strengthen your muscles, joints and bones
- Maintain a healthy blood pressure
- Increase your mobility

- Meet new people
Then contact your GP or Practice nurse about a referral, or call Whitehaven Sports Centre on: 01946 695666 for more information.
Active Life is a follow on to the Healthy Life scheme or for people new to or returning to exercise, our Active Life sessions offer gentler exercise to keep you fit and active. Many with a qualified instructor on hand to help, sessions can be identified by the Active Life logo in the centre timetable.
