Pulmonary rehabilitation organisational report: time to breathe better

Reports | Published: 18 Nov 2015 | Author: HQIP

The National Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Programme has, for the first time,  reviewed the resources and the organisation of pulmonary rehabilitation services in both England and Wales, which are set against British Thoracic Society (BTS) quality standards.

The report entitled: ‘Pulmonary rehabilitation: time to breathe better’, shows that most pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) programmes are providing treatment in line with national guidelines and quality standards. However, there are some variations of care, and not all eligible patients who would benefit from PR treatment are being referred, and a significant number of those who are referred do not attend for treatment.
