Exercise has proven benefits for individuals who have some or any of the recognised risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease.
The Staywell Programme - a Primary Prevention Scheme which runs at the Cardiac Rehab Centre is mainly designed for these individuals (and their partners if they wish).
We accept anyone onto the programme but need a referral from their GP - this is quick and simple to do.
Please forward the following information to Dr Sally Turner (details below). We will ensure that following the 10 week Staywell Programme we will write to you with the results of any/all assessments that we have undertaken with your patient.
All information provided is handled in a confidential manner and compliant with data protection.
- Reason for Referral – eg Qrisk score of 15% or more, Diabetes, History of CHD, PVD, AF, Hypertension, High Cholesterol, Stable Angina, the ‘worried well’ with a strong Family History of CHD, frail elderly etc.
