Benefits of Cardiac Rehab

Have you recently had a heart attack or heart operation?

Cardiac Rehab helps speed-up your recovery and gets you back to active living

What is Cardiac Rehab?

Having a heart attack or being diagnosed with a heart condition is a life changing event. Cardiac Rehab is a programme of education and physical activity that helps you recover and gets you back to living your active life.

It’s a key part of your long-term recovery after leaving hospital, so consider it as important as taking your medication. It can also lower your risk of having another heart attack.

The programme is medically supervised and is tailored around you. It gives you confidence to better understand your heart condition, risks and limits, whilst gradually restoring your physical and psychological fitness within a supportive environment.

Why should I attend Cardiac Rehab?

People say that attending Cardiac Rehab is reassuring as it gives them the confidence to better manage their condition and know their limits and abilities.

It also gives them a tailored, personal programme and access to additional support from their local NHS Cardiac team, and the chance to connect with other people also recovering from serious heart issues.

Clinical Research shows that people who attend Cardiac Rehab have a lower risk of another heart attack and returning to hospital; and it has a positive impact on their wellbeing and quality of life.
