Cardiac Rehab

These sessions will be for cardiac patients referred onto our Phase 4 cardiac rehab programme. Phase 4 cardiac rehabilitation is ultimately the final stage in a person’s recovery from a cardiac event such as a heart attack, angina and bypass surgery. The target for Phase 4 cardiac rehab schemes is to reduce the risk of people suffering subsequent cardiac problems and promote their return to a full and normal life.
