We therefore take a patient centred, holistic approach to managing your condition. This involves promoting self management with future planning with you to plan any potential changes, illness exacerbation and palliative management throughout your journey with the team. This ensures that you are at the centre of your own care.
We provide support for patients and families with home visits and telephone consultations. In addition we have an advice line that is accessible for patients and families available Monday-Friday 9am-4:30pm for any pressing concerns, questions or general advice.
Our team is there to support you in a variety of ways including education, information, advice, referring to additional services that could assist in daily tasks and making sure that your symptoms are managed and concerns addressed.
We have a close working relationship with our secondary care colleagues, palliative care and pulmonary rehabilitation, often offering a bridge between specialists and can discuss your condition with a consultant or specialist when required.
