Abstract

This document contains Quality Standards to be used in primary and secondary care for clinically significant bronchiectasis in adults (patients with the clinical syndrome of regular cough and sputum production, with or without recurrent chest  infections and radiological confirmation of bronchiectasis). The  Quality Standards are based on the BTS Guideline for non-CF Bronchiectasis published by the British Thoracic Society in  2010. Due to limited research in bronchiectasis, the majority of recommendations are based on expert consensus.
