The pulmonary rehabilitation service is pleased to announce that it is now back to running face-to-face pulmonary rehab classes in Letchworth and Hatfield which are open to all eligible patients in East and North Herts. Another face-to-face class is due to open in Cheshunt in January 2022.
The service continues to offer online (home exercise video with online group education) and offline (DVD or paper-based home exercise programme with telephone support) pulmonary rehab programmes, both of which run for eight weeks and include a programme of exercise and education to help you cope more effectively with your lung condition.
The Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) service is run by a team of specialists which includes but is not limited to:
The service is run for people who are having difficulty managing symptoms associated with a diagnosed breathing problem.
Diagnoses such as COPD, Asthma, Bronchiectasis, Lung Fibrosis and Dysfunctional breathing are commonly seen.
Problems such as cough, shortness of breath and repeated chest infections can be managed with a combination of education and exercise.
Patients are either seen in a group for an eight-week course of Pulmonary Rehab or on an individual basis (one to one) if more appropriate.
To find out more about the eight-week course, watch the video below which explains what's involved, who it benefits and the results it aims to produce.
