Pompey partners with Solent NHS Trust to support those living with lung conditions

Portsmouth FC is delighted to be working with the Solent NHS Trust’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation team to raise awareness of different lung conditions and support those who currently attend their rehabilitation programme. Solent’s team provides pulmonary rehabilitation for patients who have a long-term lung condition, providing exercise and self-management education.

As part of the partnership, Pompey players will feature in a series of six videos that aid the pulmonary rehabilitation process, these will include breathing techniques, exercise training and health education. The videos will be shared with patients who are currently undergoing rehab treatment for certain lung conditions or those who have lung problems to help improve their condition and quality of life. The NHS service will also feature on the jumbo screen to raise awareness of their programme to Pompey fans – some of whom might already be service users themselves.

Solent NHS Trust’s Chief Operating Officer for Portsmouth, Suzannah Rosenberg, said: “We are really excited to be partnering with Portsmouth Football Club on this project. We know that video can be an important, powerful and effective way of supporting our service users as part of their rehabilitative treatment. This collaboration is a great way to help improve the lives of those with long term lung conditions, and we look forward to hearing how the videos help improve the quality of these people’s lives.”

Pompey’s Chief Commercial Officer, Anna Mitchell said: “We are very pleased to partner with the Pulmonary Rehab and be able to support their programme. A lot of their patients are Pompey fans so we hope the breathing and exercise videos will help keep them motivated through their rehab process.”
