Key Points from the NHS Long Term Plan

Posted on: 25 Feb 2019
 

Respiratory disease is one of the few clinical priorities to feature in the NHS Long Term Plan.

Why?

  • Respiratory disease is very common
  • Diagnosis of respiratory disease is often late and inaccurate
  • There is unwarranted variation in capacity and standards in providing pulmonary rehabilitation services
  • England compares badly with its European neighbours in terms of hospital admissions and mortality

Bronwen Thompson, Mike Morgan and Duncan Keeley discuss the exciting respiratory opportunities for clinicians and commissioners to come out of the NHS Long Term Plan in the video below.
