I have been under the care of the respiratory team for several years.
I have great respect for the staff who have helped me to learn to manage and live with a long term condition.
There have been many changes in health service delivery, some improvements and some which are not of direct benefit to patients.
I really miss the co-ordinated approach of MDT working. I now attend the respiratory clinic and only see the consultant.
It would be more cost effective to have a joint clinic with access to the specialist respiratory nurses. There role has over the years been invaluable in providing practical assistance and psychological support.
Many newly diagnosed patients who need extra support I feel could miss out as the nurses are simply not available in clinics.
