GP Referral Programme
"I no longer need my diabetes medication and will soon be able to come off my blood pressure medication."
Paul, a previous patient of the exercise referral scheme at The Triangle said "When I arrived at the centre three months ago, I had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and was taking medication daily. I worked with Tim, my exercise referral specialist, who took the time to listen to me and find out what I wanted to achieve by improving my levels of activity."
"Tim initially put together a range of light exercises and worked with me to gradually increase the amount of time I spent doing physical activity on a weekly basis. Having recently been back to see my doctor I was suprised to learn that I no longer need my diabetes medication and will soon be able to come off my blood pressure medication."
Tim commented "I am extremely pleased that exercise played a fantastic role in helping Paul to no longer require his medication. Our program aims to improve every patient's quality of life and in this case the turnaround has been remarkable."
