Clinical nurse specialists
Abigail Carlton (currently on maternity leave)
We work with children (and their families) with non-CF respiratory disease, including asthma
, primary ciliary dyskinesia
(PCD) and bronchiectasis
, providing advice and support from diagnosis through to transition and on to adult services.
We attend all non-CF respiratory clinics to provide education and support, and also provide telephone and email advice. We liaise with local hospitals, community teams, and schools to ensure families are supported in the community.
Our service includes running the first stage of the Difficult Asthma Protocol, which includes a nurse-led clinic and a home visit. We now have a PCD management service which has enabled us to do joint visits with the PCD physiotherapist to patient’s homes and schools, setting up a session of chest physiotherapy at school where possible.
