Tunbridge Wells Sports Centre Health & Wellness Referral Programme


Get active and feel healthier &  happier!

What is Health and Wellness Referral Programme/Scheme?

The Health and Wellness Referral Program (HWRP) at Tunbridge Wells is designed for individuals over 18 years old, offering tailored support for those who face health risks and/or lead a sedentary lifestyle.

Through personalised guidance, participants will be able to enhance physical, mental, and social well-being under professional supervision. This structured program prioritises integrating exercise into weekly routines and is particularly beneficial for individuals with specific medical conditions.
The process begins with a referral from a GP, health professional, or self-referral. Our dedicated Health and Wellness team then will design a safe and personalised exercise program, providing continuous support throughout a six week journey. Take the first step towards a healthier lifestyle with our comprehensive program at Tunbridge Wells Sports Centre.


How to get a referral

To kick-start your journey to a better and improved health, simply secure a referral. You have the option to either self-refer by completing the referral form available here or you can undergo screening and get referred by a trusted health professional.  

Referred patients will enjoy a thorough 6-week programme with the opportunity to participate in two classes each week for a total of 12 sessions. Additionally, specialist classes will be available dependently on a health condition of a referred person. All our instructors hold Level 3 Exercise on Referral qualifications. Participants will be empowered to set personal goals, supported in enhancing dietary habits, and encouraged to engage in regular exercise.
