myCOPD helps people with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) to better manage their condition. Use it to perfect your inhaler technique, improve your breathing, reduce exacerbations, track your medication and more.


Who is it suitable for?

myCOPD is suitable for all COPD patients at any stage of their condition.

How does it work?

The app will help you manage your COPD independently and reduce your reliance on GP and hospital appointments. 

myCOPD has been shown to correct 98% of inhaler errors without any other clinical intervention, resulting in an improvement in quality of life. 

Once logged in, you will have access to a dashboard of self-care tools and educational resources, including: 

  • inhaler videos
  • breathing exercises
  • medication diary
  • symptom tracker

Clinicians can also use myCOPD to check in with their patients remotely, track their condition, update medication and improve their overall care.

How do I access it?

The mymhealth app is available to download from the App Store, Google Play and the developer's website. You can then purchase a myCOPD licence for a one-off payment of £20.

Alternatively, contact your GP, COPD healthcare team or clinical commissioning group (CCG), to find out if myCOPD is available as a free NHS service in your area. 

Once downloaded, the app can be accessed on any device that connects to the internet, such as a computer, smartphone or tablet.
