Cardiac Rehabilitation Specialist Nurse team
During the COVID-19 pandemic we are continuing to offer a cardiac rehab service on a virtual basis only. This means that unfortunately we are unable to offer group sessions or routine home visits. We are currently able to offer support over the telephone or via video consultations.
If you are a cardiac rehab patient, please watch this video made by our cardiac rehab team for helpful information:
We aim to support people and their families following recent heart attacks or expected cardiac interventions such as stents or internal defibrillators. We also provide support for people prior to and following heart surgery.

Our team compromises of cardiac rehab specialist nurses, a healthcare support worker and administration support and we work alongside the wider community nurse specialist team. We are also supported by the physiotherapists to run our cardiac rehab exercise classes and have access to several of the multi-disciplinary teams.
