Access to multidisciplinary teams
Within the cardiac rehabilitation service we are able to assess the need for other multidisciplinary health professionals and if needed access these services.
These services include dieticians, clinical psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, smoking cessation nurses and heart failure specialist nurses.
We are also working to improve links between voluntary agencies and other independent service providers that are related to heart health. These services include health champions and exercise instructors that specialise in heart conditions. The cardiac support group assist with our healthy heart programme and are available to talk with people who feel they need some extra support.
