About the Service

Rushcliffe CVS is working with Nottingham North and East Clinical Commissioning Group to deliver a weekly community-based respiratory wellbeing service based in Arnold, for people with COPD and other severe respiratory conditions. 

Rebecca Archibald is the service's co-ordinator and works two days a week on the project.

Many people with severe respiratory disease find it hard to manage their condition and can become very isolated, and this can cause low mood, anxiety and exacerbation of their symptoms. 

The service aims to provide a mixture of peer support, gentle exercise, relaxation and social activities, alongside clinical support and signposting to services.  We hope that once things are up and running, patients themselves will tell us what they enjoy and would find useful.


The service was officially launched on Tuesday 20th December. Meetings started on 3rd January 2017 and will continue every Tuesday from 1.00 to 4.00pm.
