I was referred to the cardiac risk management service following aortic valve replacement surgery. I am 48 years old and so was a bit uncertain about what benefit I might get as the class would likely be filled with more 'typical' heart patients (ie mostly quite a bit older and less fit then me). However the classes are well-run and personalised to each patient's baseline of fitness, flexibility etc and that meant I was able to exercise in a group with the social benefits that brings but on my own tailored programme which meant I got what I needed for my ongoing recovery. The specialist nurses and physios work really well together as a team, are always positive, helpful and attentive and they create a very supportive and positive atmosphere for the sessions. Thanks!
