Rehabilitation and follow up

We have 4 phases of rehabilitation. Support and information is given to patients and families about all aspects of heart disease. Once the patient has gone home we will call to see how they are managing and visit where necessary. The patient then returns to hospital to attend an exercise and education programme. Support after this time will be community based.


Bus 95 runs from Donegall Square East regularly. At the visitors' car park you pay before returning to your car. Disabled spaces and set down points are provided near the outpatients' centre.

Visiting hours

Ward visiting is 15.00-17.00 and 19.30-21.00 with a quiet time between 13.00 and 14.00. No fixed hours for intensive care, but ideally before 21.00.
