Over the phone, we can offer over the phone advice:

  • Managing breathless episodes

  • Supported cough techniques
  • Pacing activities
  • Anxiety management
  • Use of equipment
  • Signposting to other services

To access this service, please call 01793 816170. If we’re unable to answer at the time, please leave a message and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

A member of the therapy team which includes physiotherapists and occupational therapists will phone you back between the hours of 9.00 to 5.00 Monday to Friday. We can use video calling on WhatsApp or Zoom if this is available to you and preferred.
