Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a reference to a group of lung diseases that prevent airflow and cause breathing difficulties.
Typical symptoms of COPD include:
increasing breathlessness when active
a persistent cough with phlegm
frequent chest infections
If you have been diagnosed with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) you will be asked to attend for a review with our practice nurse once a year. We will also discuss your treatment and assess your inhaler technique. It is important however that you bring all your inhalers with you to the clinic.
