Green Prescription (physical activity)

Green Prescription is a programme that helps you to get more activity into your day-to-day life. It includes free consultations with a physical activity coach and the opportunity to participate in Be Active programmes. In Be Active programmes, you can try a range of activities, meet others, and get support.

Green Prescription is funded by the Ministry of Health, so there is no cost, except for a small charge to participate in the Be Active programmes.

Ask your general practice team if Green Prescription could be right for you, or phone 0800‑ACTIVE (0800-228-483). You can also fill in a Green Prescription self referral form online.

The following video shows you more information about Green Prescription.
