Pulmonary Rehabilitation information for Health Professionals

Referral to the pulmonary rehabilitation service 

Please click on the link at the bottom of the page to access our referral form. Please note that we can only accept signed referrals from registered health professionals. Referrals can also be made via PRISM or ICE.

Outcome measures

 We have developed a number of outcome measures that are now commonly used in pulmonary rehabilitation programmes.

These include measurements of exercise performance (Incremental, Modified and Endurance Shuttle Walking Tests) and health status (Chronic Respiratory Questionnaire - Self Reported). 

We have also developed a self-management manual and website for use of patients with COPD and Covid.

Please click on the links below for information about how each measure is used and for ordering details as well as how to obtain access to the websites.
