COPD stands for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It is the name used to describe a number of conditions, including bronchitis and emphysema, where people have difficulty breathing because of long term damage to their lungs.

COPD leads to damaged airways in the lungs, causing them to become narrower and making it harder for air to get in and out of the lungs, the word “chronic” means that the problem is long term.

If you have COPD, we will call you yearly for a check-up or annual review. You can discuss your medication and the nurse will assess your inhaler technique. Perform a Spirometry test to assess your lung function and ask how your lung condition affects your life regular reviews allow monitoring of the severity of your COPD, and gives an opportunity for health promotion such as help with stopping smoking or weight control.
