Chronic Disease Monitoring follows the progress of a collection of lung diseases including chronic bronchitis, emphysema and chronic obstructive airways disease.
Also known as COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) people suffering from this have trouble breathing in and out. This is referred to as airflow obstruction.
Breathing difficulties are caused by long-term damage to the lungs, usually because of smoking.
At the surgery we regularly monitor patients with COPD and provide an action plan to assist and help you to relieve your symptoms and to ensure that you continue to receive the best treatment for your condition.
