Information for patients
Cardiac rehabilitation - or cardiac rehab for short - helps you to recover and get back to as full a life as possible after a cardiac event such as a heart attack, coronary angioplasty or coronary artery bypass graft. Our resources for patients explain what cardiac rehabilitation is and what you can do to keep your heart healthy in the future.
