Abstract

As the drive towards healthcare integration in the United Kingdom (UK) gathers momentum, the British Thoracic Society identified a need to further clarify the purpose and role of integrated respiratory specialist posts. In 2007 BTS produced a discussion paper on what was at that time a newly emerging phenomenon. This paper concluded that “consultants in integrated respiratory care represents an exciting way of enhancing the care of those with lung disease but its cost effectiveness and quality and safety needs to be carefully
evaluated”.
