What we do

The Cardiac Rehabilitation Service provides all patients who fulfil the referral criteria with a patient-centred service to optimise their health and well-being and minimise the risk of recurrent cardiac events.

The service provides cardiac rehabilitation for people who have experienced a cardiac event such as:

·         Myocardial infarction/acute coronary syndrome (within the previous 3 months)

·         Coronary revascularisation(within the previous 3 months)

·         Angina

·         Heart failure

·         Following heart valve replacement

In practical terms, cardiac rehabilitation is a professionally supervised programme consisting of:

·         A medical assessment to determine risk factors, patient needs and limitations

·         A menu-based programme covering six components, namely:

-lifestyle

-risk factor management

-cardio protective therapy and implantable devices

-psychosocial status and quality of life

-education

-long-term management

 

How to access the service

Referrals are accepted from Consultant Cardiologists/Physicians, General Practitioners, Practice Nurses, District Nurses, Community Matrons, Heart Failure Specialist Nurses, Allied Health Professionals, or patient self-referral.
