Background: There are proven benefits to people with chronic heart failure (CHF) participating in a cardiac rehabilitation (CR) programme, however uptake remains disappointingly low. Admission to hospital presents a significant opportunity to offer CR referral to such a patient population. It is believed that up to 75% of patients with CHF show signs of frailty at discharge which might impact on the rate of patients' acceptance of referral to CR.
Aim: To explore the impact of frailty on patient acceptance of referral to CR following admission to hospital with an episode of decompensated CHF.
Methods and expected outcome: We will conduct an observational study assessing the relationship between frailty and acceptance of referral to CR in this patient population. It will also explore what factors impact that relationship including demographic factors, measures of self-care and patient activation measure (PAM).

- Acceptance of referral to cardiac rehabilitation [ Time Frame: Pre-discharge ]Identify whether participant has been referred to CR
- Acceptance of referral to cardiac rehabilitation [ Time Frame: 6 weeks post discharge ]Identify whether participant has been referred to CR
- Identify patient, carer and health care professional perceived barriers and facilitators to referral to Cardiac Rehabilitation [ Time Frame: 18 months ]Qualitative data analysis of focus groups and staff survey data to identify themes indicating what the barriers and facilitators to acceptance of referral to CR are.
