The cardiac/pulmonary rehabilitation service delivers specialist assessment, planning and care to encourage and support patients through a 6 – 8 week programme of exercise and education, helping them to achieve and maintain optimal physical and psychological health. We offer group based exercise sessions or individual home programmes.

A comprehensive individualised assessment is completed for each patient with a personalised plan of care. This assessment can take place face to face, via telephone or video consultation. Prior to starting the programme, patients will have a pre-programmed exercise assessment. They will also undertake pre and post programme outcomes such as a 6 minute walk test or shuttle walk test, quality of life questionnaires and PHQ 9 & GAD 7 (depression & anxiety scores). The outcomes are shared with the patient after completing the programme and sent to their GP and referrer.
