treatment for Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension specialist centres

There are nine specialist pulmonary hypertension (PH) centres in the UK and Ireland which look after people with PH. The doctors and nurses at your specialist centre will help decide the best treatment for you. They will talk you through your treatment and how to take it, and answer any questions you might have. You may only visit your specialist PH centre once or twice a year, although sometimes you may need to visit it every 3 or 4 months. So it’s important you make the most of your visit. Of course, your PH specialist team will be available to answer any questions or concerns you have in-between appointments too.

Remember to always ask your specialist PH team if you have any questions about your PH treatments. That is what they are there for.
