Cardiac Rehab

We are now taking referrals for Locala services. We are working hard to ensure the majority of our services will start to get back to normal from September, but some will take a little longer due to restrictions in response to COVID.  Once your referral has been received, it will be reviewed and a decision made about your possible treatment or care. You will then be contacted by the appropriate team with the relevant information.  At the moment this is taking longer than usual. We understand this has been difficult time for everyone and are grateful for your patience.

Referral Criteria

The service is to support and provide care for patients after a “recent” cardiac event – Myocardial Infarction, Angioplasty/Primary Angioplasty, Cardiac surgery (Coronary bypass, valve repair/replacement) and support/care Pre cardiac – surgical patients.
