Cardiac rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation

The Sports Centre, in partnership with the Sport Academic Faculty, 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).

In addition, Exercise Nutrition and Health Undergraduate students, and Clinical Exercise Physiology Post Grad students will get direct contact time under the guidance of our qualified staff in the Sports Centre, providing a unique industry link and valuable experience within the Phase 4 Cardiac Rehabilitation setting.
