Transforming long-term care

Hear from Sam Pilsworth, Consultant Respiratory Physiotherapist at Knowsley Community Respiratory Service, who will showcase how different models of delivering PR are supporting patients locally at Knowsley Community Respiratory Service, part of Liverpool Heart and Chest NHS Foundation Trust.

Laura Bimpson, Head of Implementation for NHS @home, will then talk about a new approach being developed nationally – Lung Health @home, which aims to support more people to manage their lung condition at home and increase access to pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) for people with moderate to severe breathlessness. The approach is seeking to address health inequalities for people with chronic lung conditions, such as homeless or prison populations, or those facing language barriers.
