St Vincent’s university hospital Dublin is a hospital that prides itself in respiratory care with 12 respiratory consultants treating thousands of patients with respiratory diseases.  A huge part in the management of lung disease is physiotherapy, keeping the airways clear and maintaining a good lung function.  The outpatient  physiotherapy  has been removed from SVUH and only given to Cystic Fibrosis patients. 

Patients are sent to community physiotherapists that have long waiting lists and not specialised in chest physio so there’s not much that can be done.

Diseases like Non CF bronchiectasis, COPD ( Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), IPF ( Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis) just to name a few cause serious infections and require chest physio and exercise to stay well and out of hospital. Not having an outpatient physio service is cruel, unfair and unsettling and it should be restored.  

Im calling on the  next Minister of health, The HSE and The board of the hospital to get this service restored ASAP.
