Breathe Easy Support Groups

The Pulmonary Rehabilitation team hold monthly support groups offering friendship and support for people living with a lung condition.

These groups are held at four different locations across East Lancashire at Clitheroe Community Hospital, Chatburn Road, Clitheroe,  Accrington Pals, Paradise Street, Accrington,  Irwell Medical Practice, Bacup  and Yarnspinners Primary Health Care Centre in Nelson.   We will also be holding a group at St. Peters, Burnley in the near future.

The aim of these groups is to bring  people together who are affected by lung disease, their families, friends and carers.

With a wide range of speakers including respiratory nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapist and respiratory pharmacists  and other health professionals  we hope to support people when it is needed the most.

Along with these speakers we offer exercise in the way of gentle walks lasting 30 minutes, a great way to in prove fitness.

The groups  are a way of supporting you  and your family with your lung condition and any suggestions on how you would like the group to develop would be welcome as we want to support you
