Helping People Live Better with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

The Locality is running a pilot scheme helping people with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) which includes a range of lung conditions. The pilot is being managed by practice nurses from a group of South East locality practices targeting people with COPD. The nurses identify patients who might need more support and will ring them to check they are well and to ensure they have sufficient medication or to assess if there are additional measures which could help with the management of their condition. They will invite patients to see their nurse or GP if they think this is necessary and appropriate. The scheme might be extended to include other GP practices in both the South West and South East localities once the pilot has been assessed to demonstrate its effectiveness.

 

Information About the Locality

There are 10 GP practices in the Locality with a population of 89,984. The locality Clinical Director is Dr Andrew Burnett who is supported by Dr Amear Latif.
