Green Prescription (GRx) is a nationwide programme that motivates sedentary adults (18 years and older) to become active. Patients that would benefit from an exercise programme are referred to us by the general practice team (doctor or practice nurse), or any other health professional.
Green Prescription offers 3-4 months of support to assist with your motivation and provides all the information needed to lead an independently active lifestyle.
