Pulmonary rehabilitation is an exercise and educational programme designed to help patients with limiting symptoms caused by long term lung conditions.

A typical course would start with you attending an assessment where we can gain an understanding about your health and abilities. This will help you to get the best out of your course.

You would need to attend twice a week and it would be for 6-8 weeks at your chosen venue.

At each session you will spend some time on exercise, but we won’t expect you to do more than what you can manage. Getting slightly out of breath is to be expected and is part of the therapy you will always be monitored during this. The rest of the time you will be learning more about your condition and how best to self-manage.

Each class has a maximum of 16 patients and 2 members of the pulmonary rehabilitation team.



If you would like to be referred please speak to your respiratory consultant, respiratory nurse, practice nurse  or GP.
