Singing for breathing aims to enhance existing physiotherapeutic support for respiratory conditions by introducing patients to a new form of enjoyable, informal exercise, teaching a better understanding of breath control through the use of the voice.
Singing for breathing is funded entirely through charitable donations. Set up in 2008, the project has developed and blossomed, with the model being adopted by many other hospitals across the country.
The groundbreaking programme has received extensive national media coverage, and is featured on the NHS Choices website.
