Fit for Health is a 16 week physical activity referral programme delivered by Edinburgh Leisure in partnership with NHS Lothian for people with long term health conditions. Classes are delivered across various Edinburgh Leisure venues. This physical activity programme is for those aged 16+ who have a long term health condition (e.g. cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, heart failure or diabetes/risk of developing diabetes).

Any health professional can refer to Fit for Health - this includes GP's, nurses and physiotherapists. Your health professional will be able to decide whether or not you are suitable for Fit for Health. If they think you are, they will complete a referral form and send it to the development officer at Edinburgh Leisure. You will be contacted to invite you to your nearest class. Weekly classes last for 1 hour and participants can attend these at no cost for the 16 weeks. On completion of your programme, Edinburgh Leisure will provide a range of options for you to continue your physical activity journey.
