What to expect
when you come

Our service is delivered by a team made up of professionals from different areas of medicine across a variety of locations (City Hospital, Mater Hospital and Royal Victoria Hospital).

We will look at the following issues with you and your family.

• Heart disease , treatments and risks
• Information on medicines
• Advice on healthy eating
• Advice on physical activity
• Advice on coping with stress and worry
• Practical issues such as driving, work, holidays, insurance etc.

We will give you the opportunity to ask questions and talk about any worries you or your family may have.

Part of this service can involve an outpatient programme which may include exercise sessions / education sessions.

Before you start the programme, we will assess your health and abilities so we can work out a safe level of exercise for you.

We hope that having completed a rehabilitation programme, you and your family both feel happier, healthier and more confident.
