"Rotherham cardiac rehab service gave me back my confidence"

About: Adult community services / Heart failure support services

(as the patient),

When I was treated for a blocked artery by stenting I lost all my confidence, I was afraid to do anything that may exert me even thought I had always had a very active lifestyle. Attending the cardiac rehab course gave me back that confidence and taught me better ways to exercise.
