The Wesley Hospital Pulmonary Rehabilitation

The Wesley Hospital Pulmonary Rehabilitation program is an outpatient program for people with chronic lung conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic asthma, pulmonary fibrosis and bronchiectasis. Clinical studies have shown exercise training will improve your condition and break the ‘cycle of inactivity’.

Our Pulmonary Rehabilitation program is suitable for people living at home who are limited by their breathlessness and have a decreased ability to perform normal activities of daily life. You will require a referral from your Respiratory Physician or General Practitioner. Private health insurance rebates apply.
