Community respiratory team

The community respiratory team is a group of specialist nurses and physiotherapists dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with COPD.

The nurses provide a domiciliary service at two levels - an urgent service aiming to avoid hospital admission, and a routine service within 5 working days.

The physiotherapists run the pulmonary rehabilitation service at different locations in Reading, Wokingham and Newbury & District. This is for motivated, suitable people whose MRC score is 3 or more.

The team also provide the home oxygen review service.
