We are a community-based service providing multidisciplinary, evidence-based support for patients with diagnosed respiratory conditions. We have three teams:
We provide comprehensive holistic assessment of patients with respiratory conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary fibrosis and asthma. We aim to help you self-manage your condition to improve your quality of life, and prevent or lessen the effect of an acute exacerbation. We access and review GP COPD lists to support primary care with their respiratory patients, further enhancing patient care.
We provide a specialist assessment of patients referred for consideration or management of home oxygen. This includes long-term oxygen therapy, ambulatory oxygen therapy and cluster headaches. We ensure appropriate assessment, treatment and prescription of the correct oxygen therapy to enhance quality of life for patients in line with the BTS guidelines.
We offer an evidence-based intervention that can improve quality of life in respiratory patients. This includes 12 sessions over a six week period, in line with BTS guidelines, for patients with specific respiratory conditions. The specialist physiotherapists who run the course also deliver a comprehensive holistic assessment, exercise session and education package on managing long-term respiratory conditions.
8am - 4:30pm Monday to Friday.
