Health and Wellbeing

Improving my health

Our programmes support recovery, rehabilitation and your overall health and wellbeing. 

Exercise on referral

If you have suffered physical or mental health issues illness or recently had an operation our exercise on referral sessions may help you get back into fitness. 

Our friendly, dedicated and specially trained staff at The Dolphin will provide ongoing support during a 12-week programme. You will agree a personal plan together which considers your medical conditions, preferences and interests, and your lifestyle.

The 12-week programme costs £80.00 including induction and unlimited access to the gym during specific supervised sessions throughout the 12-week period and swimming during all welcome sessions. On successful completion of the scheme, continued membership is available. Term and conditions apply.

How can I be referred?

You’ll need a ‘prescription to exercise’ from your doctor or health professional to get started and our instructors will support you through your sessions.  They will consider whether or not a referral to the scheme is appropriate.

If Exercise on Referral is considered appropriate in supporting improvements to your health, they will complete a referral form.  You will be given the completed form, please contact The Dolphin to arrange your initial consultation with our team. Please note that you cannot be accepted onto the scheme without a referral from your GP or other health professional.

If you would like any more information on the scheme you can contact our team via email or call 01444 457337

Cancer rehabilitation

Open to cancer patients who are either undergoing treatment or in recovery. It is a 12-week course that focuses on gradually re-building physical activity, strength and stamina but also offers specialist advice and confidence building required after diagnosis.

Patients will require a referral from either their GP, Macmillan nurse or consultant to be put on the scheme. Following their referral, they will receive one-to-one consultation and ongoing support, followed by tailored fitness classes and group sessions. Participants are encouraged to attend when they feel able, as it is understood that treatments and symptoms may prevent a regular schedule.
