THE district’s leisure trust has stepped into the breach to ensure patients get the physical exercise they need.
In March 2011 the government axed funding for the Activity on Referral programme which enabled health professionals to refer patients for a course of exercise or activity.
By April the South Northants Leisure Trust had agreed to continue funding the programme at both Towcester Centre for Leisure and Brackley Leisure Centre. This included the training and development of fitness professionals and the acquisition of inclusive fitness equipment for Brackley Leisure Centre.
