Listen to your lungs
The British Lung Foundation have launched the ‘listen to your lungs’ campaign, to encourage people not to ignore symptoms of breathlessness. The online breath test asks simple questions and then provides advice, including whether it’s time to speak to someone, such as a doctor.
We at PLAN are very supportive of this campaign, and hope all our members will help the BLF to get the word out. You can do this in a number of ways:
Share the breath test online
Put up a poster in your waiting room
Talk about it
We all know that early diagnosis of respiratory conditions can lead to better outcomes, so please do all you can to highlight the importance of this symptom, and encourage people to seek help.
