Green prescription getting results

Two participants in the Green Prescription programme are sharing their amazing results.

Essie Samuels (pictured) lost 50kg over 18 months, since enrolling in the free community-based activity support service. Margaret Boyce lost more than 23kg over 12 months and is no longer classified as having pre-diabetes.

A Green Prescription can be requested from your GP or nurse and is suited to anyone who may be inactive, overweight or has a long-term health condition, such as diabetes or heart issues.

You can also self-refer by calling 0800 228 483.
