Meeting BPL on the Health Referral Scheme

I met with Barnsley Premier Leisure to discuss the Health Referral Scheme, run by BPL with funding from Barnsley Council’s Public Health Department.
 
This programme supports people referred by their primary clinician or people who self-refer to increase awareness around diet, nutrition and exercise to address issues linked to the development of long term health conditions, including cancer.
 
Prevention and public health programmes such as this are so important in ensuring people live healthy lives. So it was good to meet with them to discuss the work the Referral Scheme does to increase awareness of health risk factors and promote healthy lifestyles. We touched on a number of the Scheme’s initiatives, as well as discussing ways I can support their work in future.
