Managing my COPD

Take control of your health with these resources to help you manage your chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Hospital to Home service

If you have a hospital stay due to COPD, you can access Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland’s (CHSS) telephone support service.

Once discharged, you (or a carer) can sign up to receive a series of phone consultations for a period of 6 to 12 weeks.

Calls are tailored to your needs. CHSS healthcare professionals can help with things like:

  • self-management of your condition
  • emotional support
  • financial guidance

Call the free advice line on 0808 801 0899.

For information on other support available, visit the CHSS website.
