As a membership-based organisation, our aim at PCRS is to provide a supportive, friendly and inclusive community of like-minded peers with a shared interest in improving best practice respiratory care. We are an inclusive organisation, representing a wide range of professional disciplines in a primary or community care setting. Find out more about us.
There are a number of other ways in which you can get more involved with PCRS:
- Members enjoy reduced rates to attend the PCRS Annual Conference, the UK’s only conference for all respiratory healthcare practitioners across the UK. As well as showcasing the latest best practice in respiratory healthcare, it’s a superb opportunity to network with other Members and is a highlight in the respiratory care community calendar.
- If you’d like to develop your ability to make an greater impact for more patients in the work you do, you can participate in the PCRS Respiratory Leadership Programme.
- We have a local Affiliated Group Network so people can get in touch with other respiratory care professionals locally.
- Our Early Career Researchers Meetings are open to everyone involved in respiratory academic research and are a useful opportunity to meet others in this dedicated peer group.
- PCRS Members can get closer to shaping best practice respiratory care by joining a PCRS Committee or Working Party where, collectively, we are involved with best practice development across the UK.
- Members are also welcome to contribute to our influencing work and strengthening our voice as the primary and community care experts in respiratory medicine.
- We encourage you to share your experiences with us and potentially contributing a letter or to a short article for Primary Care Respiratory Update.
The strength of PCRS is the collective enthusiasm, experience, expertise and commitment of its members. Benefit from the learning and knowledge of your peers by:
- Submitting a question to 'Second Opinion'
- Contacting your Regional Lead
- You can also contact a member you have already heard of or know through the Members Directory.
PCRS is your Society, and we’re here to help you get the most out of your membership, regardless of whether you are a generalist clinician working in general practice or respiratory specialist practitioner working or involved in a community setting.
