Abstract

Cardiovascular diseases cause more deaths annually than any other disease. It is possible to successfully reduce cardiac risk factors in people with coronary heart disease (CHD) with secondary prevention interventions. However, many people with CHD do not take part in these programmes. Recent data show that 47% of people discharged following myocardial infarction, percutaneous coronary intervention and coronary artery bypass surgery in England, Wales and Northern Ireland between 2013 and 2014 took part in a cardiac rehabilitation programme.
