Pulmonary Rehabilitation

About Pulmonary Rehabilitation

There are two components of Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR). These are:

  • Guided exercise programme designed for people with lung conditions
  • Education sessions to teach you how to manage your condition best

PR is specifically designed for those with chronic lung conditions and breathlessness and is led by Physiotherapists who are able to tailor the programme to your individual needs.

PR is run in a cohort group format, so you will attend every session with the same group of 10-12 other people.

The programme currently consists of an assessment week, followed by 6 weeks of exercise and education, then a final assessment week at the end. The assessment week allows the Physiotherapists to tailor the programme to your needs and also allows for your progress to be measured throughout the programme. PR runs twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays from 14:00-16:00. You will be expected to attend both sessions each week in order to benefit from the programme.
