Make use of physio service


Readers who suffer from breathlessness may be unaware of a very useful and effective local service run by the NHS and British Oxygen.

It is available on referral by your GP at eight twice weekly two-hour sessions at the Kimberley Leisure Centre.

Two physios, supported by a specialist nurse, provide an hour of carefully graded exercises tailored to your personal needs. You will find immediate benefit and enjoy the company of similarly affected folk.

After a sociable cup of tea or coffee (and, perhaps, a biscuit or two), you are given helpful information about your condition and various tips on how to improve your quality of life.

You would be invited for an assessment session first, and once you start, will really enjoy learning how to feel better and enjoy life more.

It’s true, I’ve tried it and it works.
