They are experts in behaviour change and focus on improving health related outcomes by working with people to set personalised goals and change their behaviours.


The service is available to all patients with a respiratory diagnosis (confirmed or suspected) – this includes, but is not limited to: Bronchitis, pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and asthma.


Patients can self-refer or be referred by a clinician.
