What to expect
when you come

Once a referral to cardiac rehabilitation has been made, you will be offered an hour-long appointment with a specialist cardiac rehabilitation nurse. Your personal needs and rehabilitation goals will be discussed and a treatment plan will be developed. If agreed by you and your health professional, a referral to services such as smoking cessation or talking-based therapies can be made. You may also be offered a supervised exercise programme delivered by a team of specialist physiotherapists. If you decide to take part in the exercise programme, a full physical assessment will be conducted prior to you being offered a place on one of our programmes that we deliver in a choice of venues in various locations across Hull.

The exercise programme aims to improve physical fitness, help you achieve your personal objectives and, aid your return to as many normal daily activities as possible. Exercise is personalised so that other existing health problems do not preclude your participation. Following programme completion, you will be offered a reassessment with the physiotherapy team which will include feedback on your progress and, advice about future exercise adherence and daily activities. You may also choose to see a cardiac rehabilitation specialist nurse prior to being discharged from the service.

If you decline any of these services but change your mind, you can request a referral until you are discharged (usually 12 weeks after your first appointment).

How long does it take

The duration of your cardiac rehabilitation programme varies depending on the severity of your condition, what aspects of the programme you choose to take part in and, when you choose to take part. Generally, cardiac rehabilitation takes 12 to 16 weeks from the day of your first specialist nurse appointment. If you choose to take part in our exercise programme, this will consist of twice weekly sessions for eight weeks (16 sessions). This is usually completed within the 12 to 16 week period.
