Respiratory Services (COPD)

Glasgow City Community Respiratory Service

The Community Respiratory Team (CRT) provide specialist support to patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) within their home setting during exacerbations of their condition, to support early discharge from hospital, and help improve self management to reduce future hospital admissions. Our team can help to enhance the quality of patients’ lives through: self management strategies such as education, breathing control, airways clearance, anxiety management, inhaled therapies/medication review, optimisation of dietary intake and recognition of exacerbations. Home exercise programmes and provision of aids allows independence within the homes setting. Patients must have a diagnosis of COPD and reside within Glasgow City.

The service is city wide. For more information and referral please contact the single point of access for the city wide service 0141 800 0790.
