About us

Community Wellness Services is a new company, but with substantial experience and expertise in the delivery of specialist physical activity and rehabilitation for the health sector. Established in 2004 our Director David Birds founded the Physical Activity Referral Scheme in Sheffield, a pathway so GPs and other health professionals could refer patients that were suffering from coronary heart disease, pulmonary diseases and other long term medical conditions for a physical activity intervention, to help improve their health and wellbeing . Patients would be assisted for a minimum of twelve weeks by highly specialist and qualified fitness instructors. Over the years the scheme grew and grew to become one of the best schemes in the country voted by Public Health England, and received local and other national recognition, as well as over 16000 happier, healthier and fitter patients.

The Scheme


The scheme over the years has worked with and alongside national charities British Heart Foundation, British Lung Foundation, Stroke Association, Mind, Autism Plus and others. Been a firm partner with NHS Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, NHS Sheffield Health and Social Care and Activity Sheffield, and been involved with many research projects with Sheffield Hallam, Sheffield, and other universities.

Today Community Wellness Services draws on all the previous vast experience and knowledge to deliver a true city-wide project, taking the expertise gained to the people in their own communities.
