Welcome to the North Gwent Cardiac Rehabilitation & Aftercare Charity
Reg Charity No: 1056887
The Charity was formed some 20 years ago when a need was identified to support heart patients, both emotionally and physically, to enable them to achieve an improvement in their quality of life and prevent further cardiac events. Importantly we work in strong partnership with the Cardiac Rehabilitation team to help provide this very necessary service.
The Charity has to register its activities with the Charity Commission and this is done through the Trust Deed. The Trust Deed holds details about how the charity operates, its financial commitments and duty of care. One part is called the charity objects and these include the purpose of the charity and are as follows;
- the advancement of a rehabilitation and aftercare programme developed by the Cardiac Rehabilitation Team at Nevill Hall Hospital and within the catchement area served by that hospital
- the provision of resources to maintain and extend the Cardiac Rehabilitation programme and the promotion of community classes caring for cardiac patients within the catchement area served by Nevill Hall Hospital
- the promotion or assistance in the promotion of research into Cardiac Rehabilitation within the catchement area of Nevill Hall Hospital and to disseminate the findings of such research among the wider medical community
- community support for palliative care for patients with heart failure
