Lung function tests are an important part of our clinical review of patients with a respiratory condition. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, face-to-face routine appointments have been reduced, and replaced with telephone and video consultations. As part of this, we are introducing new ways for patients to measure their lung function at home, so that they can record and send the results to their healthcare team.
