Respiratory Futures is the platform to visit for resources to support integrated respiratory care, commissioning, innovation and networking. It works to join the dots between the many points, people and places that make up the diverse UK respiratory sector. This is with the aim of fostering the sharing of best practice, the reduction of duplication and the development of new models of care which best meet the needs of patients and help to reduce healthcare inequalities. Respiratory Futures works in partnership with the British Thoracic Society and NHS England to support the NHSE Long Term Plan's ambitions for respiratory services.
In addition to an active website, Respiratory Futures holds live debates to promote discussion and learning in the respiratory community.
The website includes:
- The integrated futures map which holds information on each STP, Health Board and Health and Social Care Trust across the UK.
- The features section which includes interviews, articles and case studies covering innovative models of care, pressing topics and new projects in the respiratory field.
- Respiratory resources including relevant publications, a jargon buster and a directory of respiratory organisations.
- Information about and recordings of debates held and coming soon.
