About the Programme

The cardiac rehabiliation programme in North Manchester is based in the hospital, and we offer a choice of attending either the hospital based programme, which is on Tuesday mornings, or the community based programme, which is held at The East Manchester Leisure Centre in Beswick on Friday mornings.
The cardiac rehabiliation nurse specialists lead both programmes.
The programmes run for 8 weeks, and offer an exercise session as well as education sessions on heart disease and its management.

There is a separate programme for patients who have Heart Failure. This is run at the hospital on Thursday afternoons.

For those people who are not able to attend the formal exercise sessions we are able to provide a home based exercise programme, in addition to clinic appointments with the cardiac nurses to provide lifestyle advice.
