About this service:

 

British Lung Foundation nurses provide the very best care for people with lung disease.

No one likes being in hospital. We know that being able to stay at home during treatment, or being able to leave hospital that bit earlier, is important to many people with lung disease.

BLF nurses make that possible. They can give you specialist care in your home or in community clinics. That means you can have the choice to stay at home during treatment where you're comfortable rather than go into hospital. With the support of a BLF nurse when you leave hospital, you could also be discharged earlier.

How this service is offered (e.g. face-to-face, over the phone etc.):

We have more than 70 caring, expert BLF nurses all over the UK. They're all already working as respiratory specialists, but we give them extra support and training so they can give you the best possible care at home or in clinics.

 

Referral process:

If there is a BLF nurse in your area, in order to access their help and support you will need to be referred through your GP, community health service or your hospital. If there isn't a BLF nurse local to you, you should still be able to access specialist respiratory services through your healthcare provider. You can also call our helpline for information and support on 03000 030 555.
