  • Pulmonary rehabilitation can happen in many different places. Some may be run in hospital, but increasingly they will be run in a local venue. This is to try to make them as close to home as possible.
  • Leisure centres, gyms, community centres, church halls and sheltered housing common rooms have all been used for pulmonary rehabilitation.
  • In some rural areas classes may be delivered by a televised link – this is where classes being held in one location are broadcast to other locations. This enables more people to join in without having to travel a long way.
