What are the exclusion criteria?

In order to be referred to us for treatment, the patient must:

  • have a Body Mass Index of 40 or less
  • be 18 years old or over
  • not require complex rehabilitation or have a chronic disease that would require immediate post-operative care in an ITU
  • not have sickle cell anaemia, renal failure or have had a cardiac arrest in the last six months or have a pacemaker fitted

As long as the condition is managed, and the patient is stable upon admission for treatment, we can accept patients with:

  • Angina
  • Asthma
  • Atrial Fibrillation
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Dementia (patients are accepted and appropriate facilities are in place but each patient will be assessed by the team)
