East Midlands Respiratory Programme- CCG Meeting
Over the last couple of years, we have held 6 monthly meetings between CCG Respiratory Clinical Leads, Commissioning Management Leads and the East Midlands Respiratory Programme, to share examples of service developments and good practice. 


In November 2015, we held a COPD day in collaboration with EM AHSN, EM SCN and BLF. This brought together healthcare professionals and commissioners in the East Midlands to discuss, network, hear about and share best practice in order to Make A Difference. During the event, each person was given an infographic of COPD relating to their CCG or Secondary Care Trust.

East Midlands Asthma day
The EM Asthma Day was held on May 2015. In combination with the EM AHSN and a number of industrial supporters, a full day programme of speakers was put together. We had over 150 delegates. The focus was on aspects of the NRAD report – one year on. Thank you for the fantastic feedback.

Spirometry Refresher Education Sessions
In March 2015, joint working between The East Midlands Respiratory Programme & Vitalograph enabled us to host six Spirometry Refresher Education Sessions over three days in Derby, Leicester & Nottingham. These free-to-attend 2½ hour training sessions were aimed at clinicians with a basic knowledge of Spirometry, and those that required a refresher. We delivered these six sessions to over 100 Healthcare Professionals, supporting the up-skilling of East Midlands clinicians. If you require spirometry training for your locality, please let us know at This email address is being protected from spambots.
