Handover of the YorWellbeing Exercise Referral Programme

(formerly known as HEAL)


From 1st July 2018 the exercise referral programme in York will cease to be operated by City of York Council’s YorWellbeing service. Management of the programme will be taken over by Better. This is a brand that has been created by Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL), which now operates Energise leisure centre and Yearsley pool, and is currently building the new Community Stadium and Leisure Complex at Monks Cross in partnership with City of York Council.   The new service will be called HealthWise and will work in much the same way as the current programme, offering gym and community-based specialist instructor classes throughout the city. Any referrals sent to us up until 30th June will be dealt with by the YorWellbeing team. From 1st July onwards, referrals should be directed to HealthWise by email using the address healthwiseyork@gll.org. Any referrals that are received after the 1st July will be returned to the referrer with instructions to forward them to the HealthWise programme.  

HealthWise will be coordinated by Jason Minto who, as you may know, previously worked on the original HEAL programme and the current YorWellbeing exercise referral programme. City of York Council gives its full support to HealthWise and has every confidence in its management of the new scheme, which will be managed from Better Energise leisure centre in Acomb. Healthcare professionals will need to register to refer into HealthWise, even if they are already registered with the YorWellbeing exercise referral programme. To do this, or if you have any questions about the handover, please call Jason Minto on 01904 403917 or email jason.minto@gll.org.
