Borough of Croydon  

The Situation

London Borough of Croydon (LBC), together with the National Health
Service (NHS) Primary Care Trust, face a constant challenge in offering
innovative solutions to their citizens. As part of their continuing
program of activity, they have been working to introduce programs which
will improve the health of citizens, fostering a preventative culture of
resistance to serious health illnesses which arise from a lack of
regular exercise. For this there was no automated solution.

The Solution

LBC needed to partner with an organisation that would closely
understand not only their ways of working, but also the requirements of
NHS primary care trust members and local fitness instructors working in
the local leisure centres. Capgemini’s online solution, developed by a
number of disparate application teams around the country, was created
giving all organizations involved an opportunity to deliver an effective
online management system which tracks participants on the Active
Lifestyles’ Exercise Referral Program.

The Result

The LBC Active Lifestyles’ Team now has a fully operational online
system which manages the Exercise Referral Scheme. This potential
paperless system ensures effective management of the scheme thereby
optimizing delivery of service to the participants.
