Cardiac Rehabilitation Service

The cardiac rehabilitation programme is made up of a multi-disciplinary team who provide support for patients and their families throughout their experience of heart disease.

Here at CUH, the cardiac rehab team aims to help patients approach the future with confidence, and aims to provide the information, support and advice that patients need to make lifestyle changes and improve risk factors. 

The programme focuses on the long-term nature of cardiovascular disease, helping you to come to terms with it and make lifestyle changes to improve long term risk. We aim to see all patients after a cardiac event such as coronary bypass surgery, coronary angioplasty or heart valve surgery.

Cardiac rehab is delivered by a team of healthcare professionals in a variety of settings, ranging from completing home exercise programmes, group classes at a local leisure centres and community centres or Addenbrooke’s hospital.  

 

Exercising at Home

The Cardiac Rehabilitation team are committed to helping patients continue with Rehabilitation independently away from the group settings.

Please use these resources under guidance from the Cardiac Rehabilitation team. If you have not been assessed by the team, have had a recent change in symptoms, new injuries or illness, please consult the team for advise prior to starting any exercises.
