"Cardiac rehab team were wonderful"

About: Ashford Hospital

I was directed to the Cardiac Rehab team (they call themselves Cardiac Risk Management but i don't think that conveys the way the help you move forward) by my GP in January 2016 following very serious open heart Surgery late in 2015

The team of cardiac nurses and cardiac physios were genuinely excellent at every point

They made sure that each patient was carefully monitored and that the programme of exercise was constantly reviewed and revised to achieve the best result for that individual

Without doubt they contributed greatly to my own recovery and have helped me rebuild my confidence in my ability to exercise safely yet vigorously back out in the real world

They showed real levels of care and expertise during the programme and i think myself very fortunate to have been referred there
