On Thursday 27th February I attended my first session at the NHS Pulmonary Breathing Rehabilitation Class at Leith Clinic. Two minutes slow walk from the offices of JP Associates on Great Junction Street.
I didn’t see any of the associates though, as I drove to the clinic, but what I did see was the NHS at its best; physiotherapy staff going that extra mile to help myself and others feel confident and secure as they put us through our paces, teaching us that the trick is to keep breathing, even in times of physical activity and trepidation.
As I left the building after that first two hour session I couldn’t help but think how lucky I was to have such dedication and care as our NHS and as Arnie once said, I’ll be back!
Still didn’t see any associates though I did notice a suited-up young man at the bus stop.
