HERTFORDSHIRE Sports Partnership has introduced a new Exercise on Referral scheme using ReferAll’s online software solution.
The Active Herts project is coordinated by HSP and made possible with funding from Sport England, Herts Public Health and local Clinical Commissioning Groups.
Active Herts aims to target inactive people who are at risk of cardiovascular disease or mental health conditions by offering behaviour change support to help individuals get active.
The three-year project, in collaboration with research partners, University of East Anglia Medical School, aims to evaluate whether the Exercise on Referral scheme will help participants to become more physically active over a 12 month period. Using bespoke questionnaires, which have been translated online by solutions provider ReferAll, the project will assess participant activity levels. Using ReferAll key data is captured at the start, three months, six months and 12 months into the scheme to indicate if and how the participants’ behaviour has changed.
Active Herts started receiving referrals in November 2015 and in just two months has already recruited 100 participants.
