Green Prescription (GRx):

GRx is a referral based health and wellbeing programme for adults 18 years and over. It is best suited for adults who would like encouragement and motivation to become active and improve their lifestyle, help with a long term medical condition, or those who may be feeling stressed, depressed or anxious. The service is delivered through face to face, phone or virtual consultations, group-based community nutrition and wellbeing programmes, online webinars, online live exercise sessions and online maternity focussed exercise classes.
