For health professionals

Patients may be referred for one of our courses by their Consultant, GP, COPD Nurse, Respiratory Nurse Specialist or Physiotherapist. Once referred, the patient will be triaged and placed on a waiting list. 

  • Please make sure that all Referral Forms are filled in with as much detail as possible, especially with regards to medical history, as sometimes this is the only information that we have access to.
  • Please also make sure that your patient wishes to attend Pulmonary Rehabilitation and meets the criteria to attend before referring them.
  • Any referral forms that are not filled out correctly may have to be returned which may delay your patient taking part in a course.
  • Patients have been able to self-refer into pulmonary rehabilitation since 22 October 2022 using the form here.

  • Clinic letter to the CCC 
  • PR Referral form found on Evolve or DXS referral system
