Increased capacity for the ‘Exercise Referral Scheme’ for individuals with Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions – Barking and Dagenham


We are pleased to announce that as of 1 December 2021 we have increased capacity for the ‘Exercise Referral Scheme’ for individuals with Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions.

 Patients will have the opportunity to exercise with the support of a qualified instructor, as well as receive weight management and nutrition support for a total of 12 weeks.

 Their progress will be monitored and reviewed via assessments, which will be shared with primary care providers. 

 You will need to ensure that patients referred to benefit from this program fit the eligibility criteria (attached to this communication)

  • Upon assessment, you will need to fill in a referral form as usual (attached to this communication) for the suitable patient, which needs to be sent to: SocialPrescribing@lbbd.gov.uk

 We hope you are able to encourage patients with MSK conditions to partake in this program.
