Peartree’s Respiratory Day

Derby Hospitals Respiratory Consultant Ruth Aldridge brought her team out to the surgery on Wednesday 19th June for an engaging afternoon. Her team met with around 25% of those patients diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD) at the surgery and offered tips and advice on health education and self care.

Derby City Council joined the session a little later meeting with nine smokers looking to quit.

Thanks to everyone who made the event such a success and to those patients who agreed to their photograph being shared online. Ruth also publicised the Breathe Café session which is meeting on the last Tuesday of the month at the café on Normanton Park. All COPD and chronic asthma sufferers welcome. More details available from the surgery.
