Mendip Health Improvement Service

Our Mendip Health Improvement Service (Enhanced Access) supports people struggling with their weight or living with a long-term health condition to access physical activity in order to promote and protect their health. If you are struggling with your weight, living with a long-term health condition, at risk of diabetes or just ready to take control of your health, the qualified team at Wells Leisure Centre can give you the free support and access to the leisure centre at key times to make healthy changes to your lifestyle.

Your qualified Instructor will provide a comprehensive health assessment and activity programme to help guide and work with you through your current health issues and ability, to help you find ways to incorporate more free health-giving activities into your current lifestyle and help you gain the confidence to build a healthy future. You can gain access to participate in a wide variety of free and fun activities both in and out of the centre at certain times in the evenings and Saturdays.

To set up an appointment, please email: or call 01749 670055 and reference Enhanced Access and whatever GP surgery you have been referred from. You will then be referred to an instructor who will make an appointment to discuss your goals.
