Cardiac rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation

In partnership with the School of Health and Society, we have launched a new Cardiac Rehabilitation Phase 4 service. These are specialised group exercise sessions. Patients will be referred from the Cardiac Rehab Phase 3 Programme at Salford Royal, and local GP services, and there will also be additional 1-1 sessions for staff who have been through cardiac rehabilitation (staff should contact their GP first for clearance to exercise).
