  • I wonder if what he has set up is a bit like the breath easy groups. The article doesn't give enough detail really but he must have done well to get that award.

  • I think it will be more of a professional set up than the breathe easy groups Lynne, its probably closer to NHS hospital based pulmonary rehabilitation I would think. .

    May be along the lines of the Greenwich set up with additional extras but I am only guessing

  • Congratulations as well from us who are residents of Hackney! That's really good news are there any clinics for asthmatics or does Matt also cover asthma as well as copd!?Would like to know?

  • Check in with your GP or your respiratory nurse kaz67, I am sure they will know and be able to refer you.

  • Thank you for your reply! I shall find out from my doctor's surgery, have a Great day!

  • Interesting blog BC.

    Anything to promote understanding of lung health. Can't wait for my PR date to come through.

  • Enjoy your PR peeg, it is the main thing that helped me the most. The information learnt and applied will continue to help for the rest of our days.
