About the service

BREATHE are a multidisciplinary team providing specialist treatment and support, seven days per week, for patients with a diagnosed respiratory condition. The service offers patient centred care in clinics around Barnsley to make it easily accessible and, if required, will support patients in their own home to manage their condition.

Once you have been referred to the BREATHE service you will be contacted and invited to a clinic appointment or a home visit will be arranged if that is more appropriate. The BREATHE staff member will begin to assess your needs and talk a little more about what the service can offer. Also, they might suggest onward referral to support services such as pulmonary rehabilitation.

If you are unsure if you are appropriate for referral then please seek further information from your GP.
