Who we are

We are a team of specialist nurses and physiotherapists who assess and support people with breathing difficulties, either in hospital or at home in Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells. Our aim is to help patients remain at home rather than having to be admitted to hospital.

What we do

We provide community support for people suffering from respiratory conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Our hospital nursing team cares for patients on the ward and carries out home visits to deliver oxygen, while the community nursing team sees patients at home or in a clinic. We help GPs diagnose COPD and assess and review patients likely to benefit from oxygen therapy.

How do you use this service?

You need to be referred by a GP or healthcare professional unless you have previously been seen, in which case get in touch using the information here.
