To keep you informed of what's happening within the exercise referral programme we'll produce some publications form time to time.
These will include the following:
A schedule of walks will be published 4 times a year. Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. The Exercise referral scheme has partnered with Pembrokeshire National Parks to organise specific walks for our exercise referral and cardiac clients. The walks take place in some of the most beautiful countryside and coastal locations in Pembrokeshire and vary in length from 4km to 7km.
Together with our local partner the Hywel Dda University Hospital Health Board British Heart Foundation Cardiac Nurses, The Exercise referral team organise a cardiac conference. Our cardiac and exercise referral clients are invited to participate in a variety of health related workshops which have included Tai Chi, Nutrition education and health screening. Keynote speakers have included Cardiac surgical specialists & Senior management from the British Heart Foundation.
Every year we hold a Xmas Dinner at the Beggars Reach Hotel for the clients who attend our scheme. A raffle is organised and the money raised last year went to Meningitis UK search for a vaccine, Ty Hafan Children's Hospice and Pembrokeshire Cardiac Rehabilitation.
We'll share testimonials and success stories from clients who have completed their exercise referral programme and provide individual promotions such as our popular Caldey Island walk and news about our ‘Move More, Sit Less' campaign.
