Huffers and Puffers is a support group for people living with long-term respiratory illness, and for their families. It has been meeting at Royal Perth Hospital (RPH) for more than 30 years and is a chance for people to share common experiences and information in a casual and friendly environment. The group aims to help people navigate life and get the best out of each day. RPH’s Respiratory Nurse Educator coordinates the group. Working with other health professionals the educator provides information on various aspects of living with a lung condition. Feedback from the group is invaluable and helps make sure the support group program keeps up with people’s needs.
Meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month.
