Pulmonary Rehabilitation

All patients can access a pulmonary rehabilitation programme (if they have MRC grade 3 or more) unless within 2 years of a previous attendance.

Pulmonary rehabilitation encourages increased physical activity within the patient's limitations. It also offers advice about drugs and how to use them, pacing activities, eating, weight management and psychological issues.

Pulmonary rehabilitation has been shown to reduce mortality and the programme is available in community venues across the Board's area.
