Why should I take part in a rehab programme?
The community classes follow on from the NHS Phase 3 programme and whilst recommended are not mandatory. The reason they’re recommended is because regular exercise will ultimately help with your medium to long term recovery and research has indicated it could reduce your risk of further heart problems and ultimately prolong your life. The classes also help you to regain your confidence and meet people who understand what you have gone through. Many comment on the usefulness of diet and exercise education and the benefits of social interaction.
