Updated QOF indicator to support referral to pulmonary rehabilitation


Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) improves quality of life and reduces exacerbations and NICE guidelines recommend that PR should be offered to all patients who consider themselves functionally disabled due to their COPD. The change in wording to capture referrals made to PR rather than recording offers of referral which may be turned down, is aimed at ensuring all eligible patients receive a referral where available a service is available locally.
