The Respiratory Nursing Team are based at the QE hospital. We provide care, advice and support for patients with COPD, asthma, bronchiectasis and Interstitial Lung Disease.
Patients admitted to hospital are seen by a nurse during admission and may receive follow up at home or in the community or clinic. The nurses work closely with the respiratory consultants, your GP, community matron, physiotherapist and occupational therapist.
We provide advice regarding treatments for lung conditions, assessments for oxygen therapy and nebulisers. You can be referred to the Respiratory Nurses by your GP or another health professional.
