"Cardiac Rehabilitation"

About: Chesterfield Royal Hospital

After suffering a heart attack in late September and receiving excellent treatment on Manvers ward, I was referred to the cardiac rehab programme. I cannot speak highly enough of this great team! Everyone is made to feel so welcome and the staff are so understanding. After speaking to other patients I know that confidence can be a problem after a coronary event. All the staff realise this, and over the weeks both physical and emotional confidence are nurtured in a warm and reassuring environment. They also make sure that everything is done in an atmosphere of enjoyment and fun.

Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication, well done to you all!

Response from Chesterfield Royal Hospital

Thank you for your compliment to our cardiac rehab team - they will be delighted to receive it.

I hope your time in the programme has enabled you to get some of the confidence back that is, as you describe, so often lost after a heart attack.

It can take time and the fact that the team is so welcoming and understanding is a major factor.

I hope you're doing well and I'm delighted to read that the rehab programme provided some enjoyment and fun as well as helping you to improve your fitness.

With kind regards Sarah Turner-Saint, head of communications
