Cardiovascular Rehabilitation

The service supports people and their families to return to as full and active lifestyle as possible after a cardiac event, surgery or a diagnosis of cardiovascular disease. 

We will help you to understand and self-manage your condition and give you tools and choices about changes to your lifestyle. 

Evidence has shown that looking after your heart can be as important as surgery and medicine in improving your long term survival and your quality of life. 

If you are interested in our exercise course, this takes place in venues across the city.
