Respiratory Clinic: Asthma and COPD
A doctor and nurse with special interest and training in asthma, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and certain other respiratory conditions run this clinic jointly. It aims to help diagnose, treat and monitor patients with asthma and respiratory problems with a heavy emphasis on patient education and self-management plans. The clinic has special lung function testing equipment (spirometry) available. Patients are generally referred to this clinic by their doctor, but if you have asthma or COPD and have never been to this clinic then please feel free to make an appointment yourself. If you have an appointment at the respiratory clinic please bring any inhalers or peak flow meters you have been given with you to your appointment.
