The Primary Care Respiratory Society (PCRS) supports all Health Care Professionals in primary, community, and integrated care settings.  We develop an optimal, holistic, patient-centred approach to delivering quality care for all people with respiratory conditions. We are advocates for the improvement of care and outcomes for people with respiratory diseases, bringing together all professions, offering them a welcoming, supportive, inclusive, non-hierarchical community where everybody has a voice.

The PCRS vision is ‘optimal’ respiratory health for all.

Our aim is that, together, we can benefit every person with, or at risk of, lung disease


Our objectives are to:

  • promote interest in, educate and facilitate research for the benefit of the public into all aspects of common respiratory conditions found in Primary Care
  • provide an authoritative opinion where required on matters relating to all aspects of common respiratory conditions found in Primary Care
  • accredit and endorse methodologies, research, products, individuals, education, and bodies after proper consideration; and
  • provide information for subscribers and others on all aspects of common respiratory conditions found in Primary Care.


We do this through the following core activities:

  • Advocacy and campaigns  to inform and influence policy and set standards in respiratory medicine, relevant to populations nationally and locally.
  • Educating health professionals  working in primary and community settings to deliver and influence out of hospital respiratory care through open access to succinct best practice, evidence based clinical guidance and resources.
  • Promoting and disseminating real life respiratory research  relevant to population health needs that supports policy and education activities.
