Respiratory physiotherapy outpatient service

We support people with lung conditions, including:

  • chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • bronchiectasis
  • asthma
  • altered or dysfunctional breathing patterns
  • chronic cough
  • breathlessness

We work with you to produce a treatment plan that will support your breathing, lung function and physical activity.

Your treatment plan may include:

  • airway clearance techniques to help remove phlegm from the lungs
  • breathing pattern therapy to help manage breathlessness
  • activity and exercise programmes and advice 
  • support, advice and information to help you manage your symptoms

Health information

Research and clinical trials

Research is vital to improving the care that you receive when you're unwell. You can help improve healthcare by taking part in research studies at our Trust. During your appointment, ask your healthcare professional about research. They'll be happy to tell you about research studies you could be eligible to join.
