COPD

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a chronic lung condition encompassing diseases such as bronchitis and emphysema.

Patients suffering from this condition are usually over 40 years of age, get breathless on exertion, may have chronic cough and usually (but not always) have a history of smoking.

The Practice Nurse runs a management clinic to help patients with COPD, and appointments for the clinic can be made with our reception staff.
