Upcoming webinar with SpiroConnect by Numed Healthcare
Drive through spirometry service
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.

Issues in respiratory disease in COVID-19 times and beyond, recorded Wednesday 1st July, 12:30-13:30pm
Reflecting on the last few months and how our clinical and educational roles have changed this webinar will informally consider the diagnosis and management of respiratory disease and ask, ‘what is the new normal?’
It will also explore respiratory disease management and the impact on children and young people.
The sessions will encourage participants to:
- Consider if the diagnosis of respiratory disease needs lung function testing
- Reflect on the safety aspects of testing
- Appraise the changes in the management of respiratory disease; has it changed irrevocably and are the changes appropriate?
- Deliberate the specific impact this changed environment had on our children and young people with respiratory disease
