Online referrals by professionals
Our online referral form has been created to make it easier for professionals to refer people they are supporting for healthy lifestyle support in North Somerset. The form can be used to refer individuals who would benefit from the healthy lifestyle services available via the Council’s Public Health team.
Services available for referral via the online form include:
- Health Trainer Service (Weston-super-Mare residents)
- Smokefree North Somerset
- Get Ready for Change
- Staying Steady exercise classes
- Health Walks
- Get Active Pass (previously Leisure Cheques)
To view the online referral or to make a referral please visit: www.n-somerset.gov.uk/healthform. The online form provides further information about the services available for referral and lists any eligibility criteria required for referral to certain services.
Once a referral has been made the individual referred will be contacted by the service/s that they have been referred to.
The aim of this bulletin is to keep colleagues and partners informed about what is happening in the promotion/development of physical activity in North Somerset as well as nationally. If you have something you would like to include, please get in touch to add to the bulletin. The bulletin will be produced as and when there is sufficient information to share.
