New Funding Acquired For Pulmonary Rehabilitation Programme
CCICP Pulmonary Rehabilitation Service has acquired some temporary funding to trial a joint venture with the Brio Wellbeing team to deliver the pulmonary programme within the community at Winsford Lifestyle Centre.
‘’This is a fantastic opportunity which will enable us to double our current capacity and work in partnership with our colleagues at Brio Leisure.
We have a similar partnership in Crewe, and it has worked extremely well, with a marked increase in the numbers of patients continuing to exercise following the programme.’’
Appropriate patients need to be well motivated to engage in the programme and have a diagnosed chronic lung disease such as COPD. Referrals can be made by a GP or practice nurse via Emis.
