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.
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
