Organisation Description

Respiratory Matters was founded in 2011, and has provided training and education to hundreds of health care professionals in the UK. Our mission is to improve the care and outcomes of people with respiratory disease through evidence-based, practical, high quality education. We run our courses in Huddersfield with a maximum of 8 delegates to enhance the learning experience.

We deliver asthma and COPD Certificate and Diploma courses,and spirometry Foundation, Interpretation and Full Certificate courses.
