Why should I help fundraise? Our charity provides cardiac patients with one of the best rehabilitation services in the UK. Whether it be heart attack, cardiac surgery or heart failure we are dedicated to improving the quality of life and preventing further cardiac events for our patients. With cardiac events being one of the biggest killers in the UK today it may be more likely than you realise that you or someone you know will be affected by any one of these life threatening conditions. The classes are part-funded by the NHS but the Charity still has to find the money to pay salary costs, venue hire, equipment and more. For a small charity such as ours, every donation matters and is gratefully received to allow us to continue providing our service.
Do classes run on bank holidays and during extreme weather conditions? No; classes do not run on bank holidays. If in doubt during periods of bad weather including snow, we advise you to contact the Cardiac Rehabilitation office at Nevill Hall Hospital 01873 732510 or your instructor to check if the class is running.
What do I wear? You should wear whatever you feel comfortable wearing whilst doing light exercise and activity. Some prefer active wear such as leggings, jogging bottoms and a t-shirt whilst others prefer normal trousers and every day wear. Flat, comfortable shoes are recommended.
Can I bring someone with me? Yes, if required you may be able to bring along a spouse or friend for support with a valid GP referral; if they wish to also take part in the class they will also need to pay the class participation fee. See "How much are the classes?" for more details or contact a tutor for more information if you need to.
When and where are the classes? The classes run periodically throughout the week and weekends across Monmouthshire and Blaenau Gwent. For an up-to-date class schedule or to find your nearest class check out our class timetable page.
