"Cardiac Rehabilitation"

About: Cardiac Rehabilitation Program (Angliss)

(as the patient),

Hi,

I have recently finished 8 weeks of cardiac rehabilitation at Angliss Hospital. I am writing to not only thank the staff and volunteers for their fantastic help and care during the process but also to recommend cardiac rehabilitation to anyone who has had a heart incident. Evidently many people choose not to go to rehabilitation. Having been through a program I can genuinely say that it is well worth the time and effort. I found many benefits to the program but probably the best for me was that my incident left me with a constant stream of questions that needed answering. Going to rehab twice a week for 8 weeks gave me constant easy access to very experienced people with the time and patience to talk me through these issues. I honestly believe rehab is the best preparation you can get for life after a heart incident!

Dear starnp56

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback both on your experience undertaking the Eastern Health Cardiac Rehabiltiation program at the Angliss Hospital and also reinforcing the benefits the program brings to participants.

We receive many positive comments regarding participants experience in undertaking the program, not only from the benefits they receive, but also from the way all staff in the program support people as they recover from a cardiac event.

It will give me great pleasure to share your feedback with the team as I know they really appreciate hearing the impact they are having on people's lives.

I trust you continue to recover well and are on the road to the best of health.

Kind regards

David
