PARiS (Physical Activity Referral in Stockport)
Physical Activity Referral in Stockport (PARiS) is the GP Exercise Referral scheme in Stockport, designed to help patients with moderate medical conditions become and stay more physically active, whilst benefiting and or improving their health.
A joint partnership between Life Leisure and NHS Stockport, the scheme is delivered by a strong and experienced team of health and exercise professionals, who provide guidance, support and pathways towards health improvement.
Research has shown that becoming more physically active can benefit you and the management of your medical condition.
Please see below to see if you could be eligible for the PARiS scheme.
- Are you physically inactive (less than 1 x 30 minutes per week of moderate intensity exercise) and NOT a current member at a lifeLEISURE facility?
- Do you suffer from a chronic medical condition such as Hypertension, Diabetes Type 2, Joint Pain, COPD or Depression?
- Have you had a heart attack, Stroke or CABG?
If you feel you meet the criteria, then please speak to your GP or Practice Nurse and ask for a referral to the PARiS scheme. Alternatively contact 0161 482 0900 (Option 7) or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
