A Green Prescription (GRx) is a health professional's written advise to become more physically active as part of their overall health management. Your health professional may decide a GRx would be good for you if:

  • You are keen to become more physically active
  • You want to improve your eating habits
  • Or you have a medical condition which would improve with a change in lifestyle


Who can give a Green Prescription?

A Green Prescription is usually received from your Doctor or Practice Nurse.

What happens next?
