For Health Professionals
As the treating healthcare professional of a patient with a lung condition, you may be asked to provide additional resources for your patients and their support networks.
The St Vincent’s Hospital Lung Health website includes material to help your patients understand more about their lung health at all stages of their journey - from the point of diagnosis through to treatment and long-term health management.
As leaders in the field, the respiratory teams at St Vincent’s Hospital wish to help you support your patients. We invite you to use our website in your practice and recommend it to others who may find it useful.
Additionally, we value your feedback and would like to hear what you think about our site. Please send us any feedback, content suggestions or questions to SVHS.firstname.lastname@example.org
