The Respiratory Service Framework and the Workforce Framework – A Masterclass in how to Use them to Transform your Respiratory Service

RSFW Cover

PCRS have developed this Quality Improvement Tool to help commissioners, providers and healthcare professionals overcome challenges in variation of care and help to practically demonstrate what excellence is.

The Respiratory Service and Workforce Framework (RSF) aims to provide a user-friendly interactive Quality Improvement Tool which can be helpful to a variety of professionals involved in delivering and designing care for patients with respiratory disease.

The RSF tool covers eight different areas of respiratory disease;

  • General Respiratory
  • Asthma in Adults
  • Asthma in Children and Young Adults
  • Treating Tobacco Dependency
  • Interstitial Lung Disease
  • COPD
  • Lung Cancer
  • Respiratory Infections

Patients with respiratory disease deserve equal access to early and accurate diagnosis, high standards of care, delivered by practitioners with suitable training and experience. Healthcare professsionals deserve recognotiion for their skills, knowledge and exeprtise.

That is why the RSF is designed to align with Fit to Care  – a document which aims to clarify the level of training required to deliver the best respiratory care from diagnosis to complex disease.

Speaker: Daryl FreemanDaryl Freeman

Daryl worked as a partner in a Primary Care practice with a focus on elderly care until November 2017 when she left to become an associate Clinical Director with Norfolk Community Health & Care, the main provider of community care in Norfolk & Waveney. Her role is to work with Commissioners & Providers to ensure delivery of care across the area is as seamless and co-ordinated as possible with a particular focus on care for the frail elderly population and the development of new patient pathways as a result of the success of Covid Virtual Wards.
She is also Chair of the STP Respiratory Working Group, which in the last 2 years has worked towards standardising respiratory care, pathways & documents across Norfolk & Waveney. Recently she has been appointed to a joint BTS/PCRS committee looking at how respiratory care can be better integrated across Primary/Secondary and Community Care.

She has represented PCRS on the Right Care COPD pathway and is the Primary Care lead for NHSE Right Care asthma & pneumonia pathways. She also leads the PCRS Service Development Committee and is an active member of the East of England Respiratory Clinical Network.

The ever present need for improving respiratory care has led to him supporting the Respiratory society in the ambitions to demonstrate,describe and disseminate the best standards of care for the most in need of it.



Chair: Valerie GerrardChair Image

Valerie has worked in general practice for the past 17 years, firstly as a practice nurse then after gaining a Master's degree in Advanced practice as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner.

Valerie was the lead respiratory clinician in her last two general practice posts but now works in Older Peoples Medicine within the community Inpatient units across Norfolk. She is also lead for a PCRS affiliated group and has undertaken work for the CCG targeting the reduction in COPD admissions and nurse training. She is vice chair of Norfolk and Waveney Respiratory Clinical Network and Chair of the Diagnostic Steering Group for the East of England Respiratory Clinical Network. Another area Valerie really enjoys is teaching and education and regularly teaches nurses across East Anglia as a freelance trainer/educator. Valerie sits on the Executive committee of PCRS as well as the Education Committee.
