Hello everyone, I'm just doing a bit of research to find out if NHS services are starting to do Spirometry tests again.
I had a fairly mild case of Covid in April 2020 which has since left me with fatigue and breathlessness. I finally got a lung x-ray after switching GP surgeries back in June 2021 where I was told my lungs were hyperinflated and that I had COPD as a result of Covid, but they weren't doing spirometry tests due to Covid. I have had a couple of check ins with a respiratory nurse at the practice and again they say they're not doing them and they have a number of new patients waiting.
I feel I'm one of the lucky ones in that my symptoms are currently not severe but I would like to know where I am on the scale and have noticed some posts here saying people have been for spirometry, so I just wondered if they are being reintroduced.
