The Worcestershire Cardiac Rehabilitation Team offer a medically supervised programme to help you recover and return to as full a life as possible after your heart event. This could be a heart attack, valve surgery, heart surgery or a stent procedure.
You may also take part in a Cardiac Rehabilitation programme if you have been diagnosed with heart failure or angina or if you have had a device, such as an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD).
Cardiac Rehabilitation will give you and your family information, support and advice. It is a vital part of your long term recovery, along with taking your medication. Research shows that Cardiac Rehabilitation can reduce your risk of having further heart problems and being re-admitted to hospital. It has a positive impact on your wellbeing and quality of life.
We will advise you about your condition and address any individual risk factors you may have. These include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, excessive alcohol, obesity, sedentary lifestyle and stress and anxiety.
We are unable to provide a date as to when our exercise classes, appointments and education events can resume.
We are currently providing a home programme that includes a home exercise diary and links to BHF on line exercise sessions.
Each area has a helpline for support and ongoing community support via our support groups and community exercise classes.
