Who we are and how we help
The Cardiac Rehabilitation team cares for people with heart disease. Our aim is to empower people to self-manage their condition, recover from an acute cardiac event and optimise cardiac health.

The service offers an evidence based Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Rehabilitation Programme which is proven to help you recover from a heart problem, improve your physical health and your quality of life.

All programmes offer:
• Cardiovascular Exercise
• Education
• Risk Factor Management
• Stress Management and Relaxation
• Support

Our services 
All of our programmes start with an individual assessment, either face-to-face, by phone or video consultation, and we will work with you to set some goals and choose from the programmes available. During your programme we continue to offer support. At the end we perform a final assessment and liaise with your other healthcare providers about ongoing care and needs.

We conduct individualised telephone or video assessments and develop a tailored rehab plan offering cardiac exercise, education and relaxation training. We offer telephone and video calls, web-based programmes, exercise videos, a walking programme, education and support via Microsoft Teams and home visits where needed. Typically, people spend 2-3 months on their rehab programme. After a final assessment on completion of the programme we liaise with other healthcare providers, such as GPs, about ongoing care and needs.
