Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation

We run exercise and education rehabilitation group classes and 1-on-1 sessions to support people with cardiac, heart failure, pulmonary and pre-surgery conditions.

We do this by your in-person attendance across our Fitzroy (St Vincent’s Hospital) and Kew sites (St George’s Hospital) and/or by telehealth video/phone. There is also an aquatic physio option for exercise.

We aim to improve the self-management of chronic conditions or improve your fitness, symptoms and well-being.
