Specialist Nursing
Cardiac Risk Management / Secondary Prevention and Rehabilitation Service

Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals offer a comprehensive, multi-phased cardiac rehabilitation service. Cardiac patients are seen by our team of nurse specialists, who then follow them through their recovery period. Patients receive individual advice and are invited to attend our outpatient programme which includes education, risk factor management, clinical assessment, relaxation and a graduated and individual exercise supervised exercise programme.  

GPs and practice nurses can refer direct to our service at either hospital site by written referral to our rehab office at SPH.
