Harry Leach 11th Feb, 2020

THE Cardiac Rehabilitation team based at Alexandra Hospital in Redditch have been awarded the British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (BACPR)’s Green Award.

The team, which also support Evesham Community Hospital, demonstrated they meet all seven national quality standards set out by the BACPR to support patients with Cardiac problems throughout the four phases of recovery.

The award was given after a quality audit in the National Audit of Cardiac Rehabilitation.

The team offers a telephone support line, regular exercise and education classes and support group meetings for patients with Cardiac problems to get continual support throughout their recovery.

There are just 50 teams in the whole country (out of 200) that have achieved the Green level award.

Linda Barratt, Cardiac Rehab Specialist Nurse, said: “We’re delighted to receive this award, which wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the team in CCU and CPAN at the Alex.

“Everything we do is to ensure we are putting our patients first and helping our patients to move through the four phases of recovery to give them the best possible quality of life.”
