This is essential to ensuring safe exercise limits and effective exercise outcomes for 800+ patients on roll & 200+ referrals annually.
With the Board you will set the strategic direction for the charity’s exercise services and support the Health Programme Team delivering KPIs, including fitness improvement outcomes. You will liaise with colleagues in primary and secondary care and be an ambassador for the service.
