The Children's Rapid Response Respiratory Service
Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust | Midlands
The Children’s Rapid Response Respiratory Service provides specialist assessment, treatment and management of children with complex physical disabilities with additional respiratory problems in the community.
This involves early specialist respiratory physiotherapy assessment and training for families, carers and schools in chest physiotherapy management strategies so they become experts in the day-to-day management of the child’s chest problems. Rapid response is also provided to children when they are acutely unwell with a chest infection to treat their illness at home preventing hospital admissions.
