This four-week self-management programme is for those affected by non-malignant respiratory diseases, supporting them to self-manage their symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety and breathlessness, by providing coping strategies, information and support from a multidisciplinary team.

The programme also offers additional education for carers, and the opportunity to have a nurse led advance care planning discussion. For the first time, this programme will be offered after an initial face to face clinic assessment as a virtual programme accessed online, so participants will need to have access to the internet and use of a computer or internet enabled mobile phone.

To refer a patient for this programme, please email our Community Team on or call: 01803 210811.
