Community chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Services is a multidisciplinary team who provide specialist care and support for people in Kirklees aged over 18 with COPD and their carers.

COPD is the name used to describe several types of lung disease including chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Two of the main symptoms are coughing and being short of breath usually when exercising. Smokers over the age of 35 are more at risk.

We provide comprehensive diagnostic support plus review and education on the management of COPD to general practices and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with COPD.

We encourage our patients to consider pulmonary rehabilitation, an eight week course which includes exercises and specialist education appropriate for people with COPD. This is hugely beneficial to provide you with that little extra get up and go feeling.

We have links with the palliative care team, who provide end of life care and support for people and their families whose disease is in the advanced stages.

All respiratory referrals in the Huddersfield area can now be referred to the service except for Lung Cancer and TB.
