Enfield Respiratory Service

During the COVID- 19 pandemic, Enfield Respiratory Service is still in operation. All patients are offered a telephone assessment and a decision is made following this assessment as to whether a face to face appointment is required.  

Pulmonary rehabilitation is not being offered in a group setting at present, but referrals can continue to be made and we are exploring remote options via technology for provision where possible.  We are contacting all patients who have been referred for pulmonary rehabilitation to ensure that they would like to participate in the future and adding them to a waiting list.

Our oxygen service is still running for those patients who require long term oxygen therapy and ambulatory oxygen therapy.

Unfortunately we are not able to offer spirometry and FeNO at present.  Additionally, we are not able to offer face to face appointments at present for sputum clearance techniques but will discuss the technique over the telephone and where appropriate over video consultation.
