Cardiac rehab resources

Our new cardiac rehabilitation resources are available for patients and healthcare professionals to provide information on what cardiac rehab is, what happens on a programme, and how you can help your recovery.

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.
