Is Cardiac Rehabilitation for Me?

CR is beneficial for clients who have had a cardiac event or surgery. Research has shown that cardiac rehab can reduce your risk of having another heart event or being re-admitted to hospital and has a positive impact on your well-being and quality of life.

Your doctor after their assessment, will advise if cardiac rehabilitation is beneficial for you based on your diagnosis and current health status.  You cannot join the programme without a referral from a doctor.

Stroke clients will need an additional letter from their physiotherapist.
