STRUCTURE: The Bournemouth and Poole and Dorset primary care trust cluster is undertaking a review of respiratory services.

The review, supported by the Wessex Health Innovation and Education Cluster, aims to ensure that the clinical and care pathways, services and resources available meet the needs of people with a respiratory condition leading to better outcomes and an equitable service across the county of Dorset.  

The review will include services available for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bronchiectasis and pulmonary fibrosis across the cluster area and aims to lead to more care being provided in people’s homes and facilities for early discharge.
