Additional info

Healthwise is funded by the Royal Borough of Greenwich and run by Greenwich Better in partnership with other local organisations.

The Healthwise scheme is available for all Greenwich borough residents who are physically inactive with a defined medical condition such as:  high blood pressure, Diabetes, Neurological conditions, Asthma, Circulatory (including cardiac)/ respiratory diseases, Depression and anxiety, and  Arthritis.  The programme helps individuals manage and  improve their health condition(s).

To be able to take part you must be referred either by your GP or nurse.

The scheme runs for 12-weeks and offers support and motivation for people to become and remain physically active. Participants receive an individually tailored exercise programme and access to a number of classes across the Borough. These classes are delivered by qualified and experienced instructors.  Once participants have completed the programme they still have access to the subsidised membership for up to 3 years.

Current Healthwise classes include:

  • Group Gym (supervised)
  • Circuit classes
  • Water Workout Swimming
  • Spa Sessions (similar to Hydrotherapy but the pool is not so warm (@ Eltham Centre)
  • Cardiac Rehabilitation
  • Pulmonary Rehabilitation
  • Pilates
  • Healthwise Zumba Gold
  • other classes are available on the main Wellness programme; pilates, yoga, salsa, aerobics, group cycle, plus more
