Stamford Leisure Centre gives GP-referral new lease of life

Demonstrating that being active can greatly improve your health, Stamford Leisure Centre has over the past six weeks helped Kelly Hanwell, from Easton On The Hill, lose one and a half stone after joining the GP-referral scheme at the centre.

  • Kelly was referred to the scheme as she had struggled with her weight for many years and was suffering with high blood pressure
  • The team at the centre created a personalised exercise plan to increase Kelly’s fitness and help her lose weight to improve her health
  • Kelly now attends gym sessions at the leisure centre three or four times each week, as well as swimming two or three times during the week
  • The GP-referral scheme is available at Stamford Leisure Centre by referral from your doctor, and runs over an initial three-month period with consultation, programme and review


Kelly commented:

I feel so much better now that I’m going to the gym every week, it has boosted my confidence and energy levels dramatically and it’s fantastic that the weight is dropping off so quickly. The team at Stamford Leisure Centre has been so supportive and a great help, especially Lisa, who has helped me to develop a routine. If I ever get bored, Lisa will always mix it up to keep me entertained. I’ve learnt to enjoy visiting the gym, which I now call ‘‘me-time’.

Lisa at Stamford Leisure Centre, commented:

The team and I are so proud of Kelly’s progress over the past six weeks, she is really enthusiastic about the programme and always puts in 110%!  It is fantastic for us to work with members of the local community via the GP-referral scheme, and we hope to continue helping those that need support in their exercise routines.
