How do I get a referral?

You can ask at your local GP practice for a BEEP referral. If you meet the referral criteria, a health professional can complete the referral form and give it to you.

Where are the assessment appointments held?

The programme assessments are held daily in GP surgeries and leisure centres across the Bradford district.

What happens at an assessment appointment?

During your first assessment the team will do a health screening to help make your exercise meet your needs. They will then take specific measures to enable them to monitor your progress over the year such as current physical activity levels, BMI, body fat %, visceral fat %, blood pressure, resting heart rate and well-being score. You will then be referred onto an exercise provider of your choice.

There will be motivational support throughout your time with BEEP, and also text messages, email, health apps and links to online support to ensure you continue your healthy lifestyle.
