"Cardiac rehabilation programme at the Angliss Hospital"

About: Angliss Hospital Cardiac Rehabilitation Program (Angliss)

(as a relative),

My husband is currently doing the cardiac rehab programme at the Angliss Hospital and I just want to say how thankful we both are that he decided to take part. Apart from the gym and education sessions, which have been extremely beneficial, he has also had the opportunity to ask questions about his health that, unfortunately, he didn't learn from the cardiologist before being discharged from hospital (this was not at the Angliss). Some people might feel extremely concerned and also depressed after a heart event and I really believe that anyone in that situation should take part in the programme to realise they are not alone in this. I made the decision to go to the education sessions which are run immediately after the gym session, and I'm so glad I did as there is a lot to learn with regard to the ongoing health and welfare of the patient and it is fantastic that spouses and partners can attend as we are in this together. Finally, I would like to add that all of the staff involved do a fantastic job.

Dear Carebear

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback regarding your experience with the Cardiac Rehabilitation program at Angliss Hospital.

It is clear, both from your feedback and that of others who participate in the program how much impact the program and the staff who conduct the program have. After a stressful event such as participants have, to learn what people can do to support their own health is really vital. It will give me great pleasure to share your feedback with the team as I know they love to receive feedback such as yours!!

I trust your husband is getting as much from the program as you are and I wish you both the very best of health.

Thanks again Carebear and kind regards

David
