    Abstract

    Though the total number of patients with cardiac illness referred to a work classification clinic was relatively small (57), the results obtained in terms of patients at work in the year after assessment is encouraging. It is suggested that a comparatively simple method can help in the rehabilitation of patients, often by removing minor anxieties, and by improving communication among the various agencies interested in the welfare and employment of the individual patient.
