What we do 

The Cardiac Rehabilitation Service provides care for patients following a heart attack (MI) stent (PCI, percutaneous coronary intervention) or coronary artery bypass surgery.

We support recovery and return to normal activities by educating patients in the self-management of their condition and making sustainable lifestyle changes to reduce further complications of coronary heart disease (CHD). This process usually starts in hospital. 

Support 

Patients will receive a telephone call to discuss their progress following discharge and their cardiac rehabilitation options. All patients are offered an initial assessment; a combination of clinic, home visits, education and exercise groups, phone or online support (this level of contact may vary depending on current Covid-19 guidance).

Weekly education sessions are held at Rotherham Community Health Centre and weekly exercise groups are held at Breathing Space, if interested patients are invited to these on specific dates.

During the initial weeks and months, support is given through education, risk factor identification, goal setting, stress and anxiety management, activity and dietary advice, symptom monitoring and the best medication combination.

We are based at Rotherham Community Health Centre. Please contact the office on 01709 423257 or email the team rgh-tr.rotherhamcardiacteam@nhs.net if you have any queries.
