Cardiac rehab services in Wales 'still inconsistent'

More patients are taking up cardiac rehabilitation after a heart attack, making Wales a "world leader" in the service, a charity has said.

British Heart Foundation (BHF) said 59% of patients sought support following a procedure - up 17% on the year before.

It comes two years after the uptake in Wales was criticised for falling behind care in England.

BHF welcomed the rise but said 2,000 patients were still missing out in Wales, while the head of the charity in Wales, Ruth Coombs, said there were still inconsistencies in services.
