APEX/APEX Follow-on (Halton only)

APEX (Accident Prevention Exercise) is a 15 week programme of exercise and education to improve your strength, balance, co-ordination and confidence. This programme is appropriate if you have had 1 or more falls, if you have a fear of falling, or if you have osteoporosis.

You will need approval from your GP first to be accepted on to the programme. Once we have this approval, you will then have an initial assessment. The programme consists of community classes, home-based exercises and guest speakers relating to falls prevention. When you complete the course, you can then be put forward for ongoing community follow-on classes.

APEX/APEX Follow-on is a Halton only programme. A similar programme does take place in Surrey, however patients must speak to their GP or practice nurse first to be referred.
