Phase 4 Providers

Phase 4 constitutes the components of  long-term maintenance of lifestyle changes and professional monitoring of clinical status.  It is when patients leave the structured Phase 3 programme and continue exercise and other lifestyle modifications indefinitely. This may be facilitated in the CR units or in a local leisure centre. Alternatively, individuals may prefer to exercise independently and Phase 4 may involve helping them set a safe and realistic maintenance programme.

If you are a patient and interested in attending a phase 4 exercise class. There are phase 4 classes available in many places in Ireland and more are being established.

You will require a referral form to be completed, prior to commencing the classes. This form can be completed by your GP or your phase 3 instructor.

You can contact any of the facilities below to find out more information
