Cardiac rehabilitation encourages people affected by cardiac disease to achieve and maintain good physical and psychological health. The service offers an 8-week intensive cardiac rehabilitation programme delivered by a multidisciplinary team.
Each course consists of a pre-course assessment, six consecutive sessions and a final discharge assessment.
Topics covered include:
- The benefits of exercise
- The heart – how it works
- Medication and treatments
- Stress and relaxation
- Further exercise in the community
- Risk factors for heart disease
- Healthy eating
We can also offer a home-based program via telephone to those unable to attend a group venue.
Who we care for
Patients with heart failure or those who have had a myocardial infarction, revascularisation or cardiac surgery.
Referral is via cardiac consultant or other health professional.
