Cardiac Rehabilitation

We can help you recover from an acute cardiac event or heart failure with our six week rehabilitation programme.

You’ll be referred into our service during your stay in hospital.

When you’re ready to be discharged, our nurses will come and talk through the programme with you.

Once your condition is stable and it’s safe for you to start exercising, we’ll get you started on the six week programme.

We’ll focus on exercises, mainly aerobic activities which have the biggest benefit, to help you regain your strength and improve your long term health.

We’ll also visit you at home or chat with you over the phone to advise you about your condition, manage your medication and regularly assess your progress.

Once you’ve completed our programme, we recommend you continue with your exercises by taking classes at your local leisure centre or gym.
