This chapter looks at the role of cardiac rehabilitation for those at risk of cardiac disease or who have sustained a cardiac event. Cardiac rehabilitation has been a priority area for a long time in the National Service Framework for Coronary Heart Disease, NHS Improvement Plan, and now features in the NHS Long Term Plan. The introduction of certification for cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation programmes (CPRP) has meant that their quality can be measured. The introduction of more technology-based interventions has opened up the opportunity for more people to participate, particularly for individuals who could not, or did not want to attend a traditional CPRP.
