A Green Prescription is written advice from a health professional (usually a GP or Practice Nurse) recommending a person become more physically active as part of their health management.
Across Auckland City and Counties Manukau the Green Prescription Programme is carried out in two ways:
Phone Support is a free service offering support by phone for a period of 3-4 months. Our support staff help people to find enjoyable physical activity options, assist them to fit these activities into their routine and form a regular habit.
Face to Face
We also partner with other organisations to provide free and low cost physical activity and wellness programmes in the community. These consist of an educational workshop and physical activity that can include aqua aerobics, gym workouts, walking and low impact aerobics.
Anybody who is interested in increasing their physical activity can go on the Green Prescription programme. Often people referred to us have medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity and mental illness.
