We are a team of three respiratory nurse specialists who support patients with a chronic lung condition such as COPD, chronic asthma and pulmonary fibrosis amongst others.
We work in the hospital and community setting. As part of our role in the hospital we see patients who have been admitted with a flare up of their COPD and review elements of their disease. As part of our community work we review patients in their own homes, where we offer a complex and holistic assessment which then enables us to plan care and set realistic goals with our patients.
We believe that our patients are the experts in their condition and our aim is to promote self-care to support the patient to live the best quality of life possible.
