Local Groups

Make a real difference in respiratory care in your area 

Whether you are a practice nurse or locality lead, being responsible for improving respiratory care for patients can be both daunting and frustrating – especially when you’re facing budget cuts, juggling workloads and trying to keep up-to-speed with the latest developments.

A local respiratory group is the ideal way to bring colleagues together in your area. Providing a forum to keep up to date, share best practice with peers and benefit from a network of support.

PCRS-UK currently has around 50 affiliated local groups ranging from nurse groups, keen for a support network, through primary care groups helping colleagues to keep up to date with the latest clinical developments to multidisciplinary networks driving service improvement across a locality.  To see if there is an existing group visit our interactive map 

Coordinating a group takes time but it is also rewarding.

Why run a local affiliated group?
Develop your personal and professional skills
Share best practice with and learn from your peers and local practices
Support improved respiratory care in your area
