Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the name for a group of lung conditions that cause breathing difficulties.

It includes:

  • emphysema – damage to the air sacs in the lungs 
  • chronic bronchitis – long-term inflammation of the airways

COPD patients are usually called in yearly for a review with the Practice Nurse Michelle Hedley.
