Respiratory physiology MAC report March 2009

WRT analysis indicates that the demand for respiratory physiology investigations will continue to increase. This is due to an anticipated future increase in the incidence of respiratory disease together with the increasing emphasis on early diagnostic and monitoring services. WRT modelling suggests that with the current number of trainees, the total number of respiratory physiologists in the workforce may show a small decrease in future years. Recruitment from Australasia, parts of the USA, Netherlands and a few other countries, where standards are equivalent and experience similar for lung function, is possible.
