Press Release: HEART UK, 16 January 2012
HEART UK has today called on all NHS Trusts to offer cardiac rehabilitation services to patients more vigorously following the launch of a report highlighting the inequalities in treatment after a heart attack in England.
The cardiac rehabilitation report, entitled ‘After the event: getting care right for patients after a heart attack’, found that 2,100 patients across England are not being offered cardiac rehabilitation despite the clear benefits of the service in improving patient experience and outcomes from the disease.
