Final report of a three year evaluation into Big Lottery Fund cardiac rehabilitation programme, supported by the British Heart Foundation. The BHF and BIG agreed a programme of work that would offer three years of pump priming funding to groups based in Primary Care who wished to improve local CR services. Following an open call for proposals and a refereeing process, 36 CR programmes in Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) in England were funded for up to three years, starting in 2005/6. Each programme was supported by one of four BHF Rehabilitation Coordinators.
