Our new physical activity referral scheme, Slough in Motion (SiM), is a great way for people to increase their activity levels and improve health. We are keen to help people move more and sit down less.

The SiM scheme covers a wide range of health conditions including high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, overweight or obesity, depression or anxiety, osteoporosis and other conditions; all of which we can help you with.

If you want to positively influence your health and wellbeing then the support we can offer through SiM will help get you started with a great variety of enjoyable physical activities to benefit your health. As well as advice and guidance on how you can move more and sit down less in your day to day life.

Moving more and sitting down less can benefit your heart health, manage your weight, improve your muscle and joint functions, and positively affect your mind. Not only will it help you manage and control existing conditions, but it will help protect you from developing other health complications too.

Slough in Motion includes a range of local services and provisions to get you more active, this includes:

  • general support and guidance of how to become less sedentary through NHS's move more page
