Black Swan Health staff based in Midland are passionate about helping asthma sufferers.
Ask Elizabeth Whitehurst about asthma conditions and you may not get a word in edge ways. Her passion for helping respiratory patients and teaching them how to self-manage their condition is apparent from the moment you meet her.
Elizabeth is one of Black Swan Health’s friendly staff members working from their new Midland premises, conveniently located opposite Midland Gate Shopping Centre. She is a Respiratory Nurse Specialist and Asthma Educator, experienced in treating conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchiectasis, interstitial lung disease, pulmonary fibrosis and pulmonary hypertension.
“Many people do not realise that the amount of damage done to the lungs when they have an infection is the same amount that is done to the heart when someone has a heart attack”
CEO, Terina Grace, said that “chronic respiratory illness is very common in the community and we are pleased to be able to bring this important service to Midland”.
People interested in these free services should speak to their local GP or health professional about a referral. Alternatively they can visit our website or one of our other locations (Joondalup, Mirrabooka, Osborne Park, Fremantle or Cockburn) for more information.
