Information on the number of National Health Service staff who have undertaken additional training to support patients with respiratory needs is not collected centrally. It would be for individual trusts to train staff according to local needs and demand.

A variety of guidance on workforce, including the principles for increasing the nursing workforce in response to exceptional increased demand in adult critical care, can be found on NHS England’s website and accessed via the following link:
