Cardiac rehabilitation and support services

If you have recently undergone cardiac surgery or cardiac event then we recommend participation in a cardiac rehabilitation programme.

Cardiac rehabilitation is widely acknowledged and accepted for improving the quality of life of patients. It aims to promote the recovery and long standing secondary prevention of coronary heart disease. It encompasses exercise, education, psychosocial aspects, and a medical approach to secondary prevention.

The core components of cardiac rehabilitation include:

  • Lifestyle – this includes physical activity and exercise, diet and weight management, smoking cessation
  • Education
  • Risk factor management
  • Psychosocial
  • Cardio protective drug therapy and implantable devices
