Welsh Government & Public Health Wales
Move Consulting Director Elaine McNish led on the development of the National Exercise Referral Scheme – a government-funded initiative from the Welsh Local Government Association in partnership with Public Health Wales.
Operating since July 2007, Elaine developed this evidence-based health intervention which incorporates physical activity and behaviour change, and supports clients to make and maintain healthier lifestyle choices to improve their health and wellbeing.
This thriving programme has standardised exercise referral opportunities across all Local Authorities and Local Health Boards in Wales and aims to reduce the inequalities in ill health by providing access to tailored and supervised physical activity. The scheme targets people who are not used to regular physical activity and are at risk of, or currently experiencing, a long-term or chronic health condition.
