Do you have a lung condition such as emphysema or asthma? Our service provides assessments, education, support and programs that may assist you.
Call the Community Care Intake Service on 1800 654 324 to arrange an appointment.
We have a Lung (Pulmonary) Rehabilitation program that provides information on lung function by specialist nurses and health professionals.
You can take part in exercise sessions run by physiotherapists that can help you to manage daily movement and breathlessness.
If you are newly diagnosed with lung disease and still active in the workforce an Easy Breathing Better Living program is available. The program can help you achieve your personal goals and improve your quality of life.
