The National Exercise Referral Scheme (NERS) is designed to aid individuals, who have been identified by their Medical Practitioner, to take up the benefits of participating in high quality supervised enjoyable exercise programme to improve health and wellbeing.
Aimed at those over 16 years of age, who are not used to being regularly physically active and have a medical condition, the Scheme is designed to provide opportunities to exercise that are fun, rewarding and that can be incorporated into everyday life.
