Community Respiratory Service

Sefton Community Respiratory Teams provide a rapid access, specialist service, to help people with a diagnosed respiratory condition including Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Interstitial Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), Bronchiectasis and Asthma, to manage their condition and prevent exacerbation of their symptoms.

We offer a combination of 'Early Supported Discharge' from hospital services, and a 'Hospital at Home' hospital admittance avoidance service for our respiratory patients. We also offer optimisation reviews either in community clinics or at home for our housebound patients.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation classes are delivered in North and South Sefton, these combine education and exercise for respiratory patients in the area. These are delivered from Litherland Sports Park and Lakeside Christian Centre twice a week.
