ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the programme of exercise and education led by primary care trust (PCT) nurses in the Isle of Wight which had been proven to improve the quality of life for patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD). The programme's first batch of participants doubled the distance they walked during an incremental shuttle walk test which tested the difference before and after the programme. The programme received funding through partnerships after proving its success.
