Respiratory Futures is the platform for resources to support integrated respiratory care, commissioning, innovation and networking. We are working to bring together the diverse UK respiratory sector.


Our aims are to:

  • foster the sharing of best practice,
  • reduce duplication, and
  • support the development of new models of care which best meet the needs of patients and help to reduce healthcare inequalities.

Respiratory Futures works in partnership with the British Thoracic Society and NHS England to support the NHSE Long Term Plan’s ambitions for respiratory services.


On the site you can find:

  • Our interactive map which holds information on each STP, Health Board and Health and Social Care Trust across the UK.
  • Interviews, articles and case studies in the features section covering innovative models of care, pressing topics and new projects in the respiratory field.
  • Respiratory resources including relevant publications, a jargon buster and a directory of respiratory organisations.


In addition, Respiratory Futures holds lives debates to promote discussion and learning in the respiratory community. Recordings of these events can be found in the debate section.


We are always interested to hear your thoughts and to know about respiratory projects or models of care you are involved in. Respiratory Futures depends on your contributions so get in touch at contact@respiratoryfutures.org.uk – we’d love to hear from you.
