Population focused respiratory service framework

This framework, developed by the PCRS-UK Service Development Committee helps those looking to design a holistic and integrated respiratory service to see the ideal components for a given population of patients.

It builds on the work previously undertaken by PCRS-UK to develop a series of care standards for GP practices as part of its Quality Award programme. With the rise of integrated care systems and general practice at scale, commissioners and service development managers tell us they are keen to improve care and reduce variability but needed a starting point.

The Respiratory Service Framework provides that starting point by describing the scope of best respiratory care and the services required

The framework has been developed by a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians, who are all members of the PCRS-UK Service Development Committee: GPs Noel Baxter, Daryl Freeman, Katherine Hickman, and Sanjeev Rana, Consultant Chest Physician, Binita Kane, Respiratory Specialist Nurse, Vikki Knowles and Respiratory Specialist Physiotherapist Alex Woodward.

PCRS-UK is grateful to Cogora, the publisher of Pulse, Healthcare Leader and Management in Practice for their contribution to the design of the framework
