The Respiratory Service Framework

Developed by the PCRS Service Development Committee, the Respiratory Service Framework (RSF) helps those looking to design a patient focussed respiratory service working across all sectors of out of hospital care to see the ideal components for a given population of patients. It has been designed to be applicable and helpful to those delivery care at a PCN or ICS level.

Interactive Respiratory Resources

To support the framework, and to improve the ease with which users can find the relevant resources, we have developed an Interactive Respiratory Framework Resources page.   We have also aligned the RSF with the PCRS Fit-to-Care series and the interactive tool will highlight the level of knowledge, skills and training required to deliver services to the relevant standard.

Simply select the pillar, Fit to Care level and clinical area to find a range of resources to support you in your practice.

For more help on how to use the Interactive Resource page and the tools and resources take a look at our On Demand Webinars

The original framework was developed by a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians, who were all members of the PCRS Service Development Committee at the time: 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. The revised framework has been updated by the current Service Development Committee.

PCRS is grateful to Cogora, the publisher of Pulse, Healthcare Leader and Management in Practice for their contribution to the design of the Respiratory Service Framework.
