Managing your respiratory disease as you near the end of your life can be very difficult for both patient and family. The community respiratory team has a vast knowledge in both the management of difficult symptoms and knowing how to help with this in the community. We use a way of helping you and your family by being able to get other services when needed and also by offering support. We offer a bridge between hospital care and primary care being able to discuss your condition with a consultant or specialist. We also work very closely with the specialist palliative care team. Our aim is to care for you and your family as you would wish.
