Basingstoke & Alton Cardiac Rehabilitation Charity
Helping residents recover and then maintain their health and fitness after heart attacks and heart operations.
Welcome to Cardiac Rehab
Basingstoke & Alton Cardiac Rehabilitation Charity (“Cardiac Rehab”) helps residents of north, east and mid Hampshire (and the surrounding areas) to recover and then maintain their health and fitness after heart attacks and heart operations.
Since January 2009 we have also offered the Staywell Scheme, under which GPs can refer to us people at risk of developing heart disease, for courses of exercise and health education.
- Facilities for an NHS clinical team to run Phase III cardiac rehabilitation courses for patients discharged from the North Hampshire Hospital in Basingstoke (and from other hospitals on request). The hospital also runs a Rapid Access Chest Pain Clinic from our site.
- Our own Phase IV cardiac rehabilitation “continuing exercise” sessions, open to anyone referred to us by a health professional. Clients travel to us from within an approximate 20 mile radius, including from Basingstoke, Winchester, Farnham, Petersfield and Fleet, and often exercise regularly with us for years. We run over 50 hours of classes per week and have over 25,000 client attendances per year. These exercise sessions are also attended by people on our Staywell Scheme for the primary prevention of heart disease.
