A GYM in Chesham is hoping to tie up a referral scheme with GPs to help patients overcome injuries.

Customers using the Chesham Moor Gym and Swim frequently ask staff if they can use their facilities after being referred there by their doctor.

At the moment the gym doesn't offer such a scheme - but it's hoped one can be introduced later in the year.

Manager Danny Essex said: "We regularly get clients popping in asking about it but we're constantly having to say sorry we can't do it.

"We're speaking to various physios and GPs that are interested and later in the year it's something we are going to be operating."

He added: "We're tying it in with a new range of gym equipment that's compatible with the GP scheme."
