COPD is a condition that affects the breathing and includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
Breathing difficulties are caused by long-term damage to the lungs, often because of smoking.
At the surgery we regularly monitor patients with COPD including spirometry testing (lung function test) and provide an action plan to assist and help you to relieve your symptoms.
