Your first appointment
At this appointment you and your Get Active Specialist will talk about the steps you can take to start getting active. Together you will look at what you want to achieve, how to get there and how we can support you. This will include agreeing your personal Get Active plan to guide you. They will also help to find a local activity or sport session to suit your needs.
Two week catch up
After two weeks your Get Active Specialist will give you a call to see how you are getting on with your plan. You will discuss progress so far and how you are feeling about being more active. If you feel you would like some motivation or extra guidance at this stage, you will be able to book another free appointment to talk about any concerns you may have.
Three month review
After three months, your Specialist will contact you to book in a review. This will be a chance to look at your progress so far and see how you’re getting on. At this appointment, you can discuss how you are feeling, identify any health improvements and develop your plan for the coming months.
Additional follow ups
Depending on your location, you may be able to access further consultations and support from your Get Active Specialist. Even if you haven’t been able to stick to the programme, your Specialist can give you tailored support to get back on track.

Our team of Get Active Specialists offer appointments in several locations in your area. If referred by your GP or health professional we will always try to see you at your own surgery. We have set appointments each week within GP practices, but if these are not suitable we can arrange to meet you at an alternative time and place.
