Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Team Greenwich

The Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Team provide specialist care to Greenwich residents living with COPD. Patients are given the tools to self manage their condition and stay in the best health possible with a combination of clinic appointments and visits in their own home when necessary.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation, a seven week course of twice weekly education and exercise, is also available for patients. Patients who feel unwell can call the service for assessment, treatment and advice, which allows patients in a period of ‘exacerbation’ to remain at home, monitored by the COPD team, avoiding an unnecessary hospital admission.

The team also manages the oxygen prescription service for patients registered with a GP.

Oxleas Patient Experience survey

The Oxleas Patient Experience survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the care and treatment you have received. We also encourage your friends, family and carers to also provide feedback. Hearing your views gives us a better understanding of the needs of our patients, families and carers which helps us to make sure that we are providing a good standard of care. 

The short survey only takes a few minutes to complete and you can provide a written comment explaining what you think is working well and what is not. The Patient Experience team will collect the results of the surveys and these are shared with the relevant departments and management teams. This helps us to shape our services to continually improve the quality of the care and treatment we provide.

GP referral information
