Signposting tools

Signposting patients to physical activity can fast-track healthy new habits.

Patients are more likely to stick to lifestyle changes if they feel in control. Signposting your patients to physical activity finders will enable them to choose activities they’ll enjoy.

We’ve created a toolkit packed full of resources to support individuals to get active. And, for extra support, we’ve created one to enable friends and family to help. These toolkits signpost to activity finders, apps and home workouts.

Walking for health

Walking for Health is a great initiative for those who want to enjoy the social side of being active. We are lucky to have many FREE schemes operating in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. The walks are short and over easy terrain. They are open to everyone. But, they are specifically aimed at those who are not very active. Patients can find their nearest walks through the following links:
