Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation

We run exercise rehabilitation classes for people with cardiac, heart failure and pulmonary conditions across our Fitzroy (St Vincent’s Hospital) and Kew sites (St George’s Hospital). These classes consist of an exercise component and a discussion and education session around different topics that aim to improve self-management of chronic conditions.


Our Team

You will have access to a multidisciplinary team which includes nursing, physiotherapy, dietetics, occupational therapy, social work and pharmacy. Our team will help you identify the goals you want to achieve and support you.
