NWAFT launched a drive through spirometry service in September. This service is among the first in the country to provide a service like this. The drive-through clinics allow patients to have a lung function test without leaving their car. It has been put in place to reduce the risk of Covid-19 to clinically extremely vulnerable patients and those shielding. This has also allowed the service to reduce waiting times and backlog.
This webinar will go through the commissioning, risks including health and safety and infection control concerns, benefits of the service including patient and staff feedback and how to adapt and adopt the process within your region.
Co-produced by The Respiratory Show and SpiroConnect by Numed Healthcare.
