The SWL clinical respiratory guidelines here are based on national recommendations in the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence CE and British Thoracic Society (BTS) guidance and have been developed by a multi-disciplinary group comprising primary care and secondary care pharmacists, respiratory nurse specialists, practice nurses, GPs and respiratory consultants working across SW London. 

These guidelines aim to support clinicians to deliver enhanced patient care and improve outcomes in respiratory patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and asthma.

This webpage is kept under review and reflects the latest guidance at time of publication. It remains the responsibility of prescribers to ensure they adhere to the latest guidelines, license changes and product availability.
