Only visit your local Emergency Department for serious life-threatening conditions that need immediate medical attention including persistent severe chest pain, loss of consciousness, acute confused state, severe breathlessness, severe blood loss, serious burns or suspected stroke.
When you have Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) or a lung problem, you can find it difficult to move around or do your normal daily activities without getting breathless.
Our Pulmonary Rehabilitation Team aims to help you cope with your breathlessness and to feel stronger and fitter at the same time. The team is supported by specialist community matrons who do oxygen assessments and have knowledge in COPD and heart failure.
After you are referred you will be invited to an assessment with the physiotherapist.
If we feel this service is right for you, you will be invited to attend the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Group and given an individual exercise programme. This will be two sessions a week for 6 weeks, and each session will last for two hours. Educational/advice sessions will be included as part of the programme.
Our service is for people aged 18 and over.
