About the service

The Chronic Respiratory Services are for people diagnosed with a chronic respiratory illness such as asthma, COPD, emphysema, chronic bronchitis or bronchiectasis.

The program aims to help people to:

  • increase their independence,
  • increase their physical function (walking and strength),
  • improve their breathlessness,
  • improve their emotional health, and
  • improve their quality of life.

The program consists of two parts:

  • One on one contact with a nurse who specialises in care of chronic respiratory conditions. This contact may occur at the hospital or at a person’s home, depending on need.
  • A 12 session group program which runs across a 6 week period.
