Overview of the service
The Respiratory Service is a multidisciplinary team of specialist nurses, physiotherapists and an occupational therapist who specialise in the treatment and management of adults with respiratory disease within the community. We support patients with respiratory disease or conditions, and help them with services including monitoring, lifestyle changes, pulmonary rehabilitation and specialist care through one-to-one and class based sessions. We also provide advice to patients and their families.
Patients can be seen in a range of settings including their own homes, clinics and GP practices.
