Where can I find help with respiratory/lung diseases?

Diseases which can affect the lungs include asthma, bronchitis, cancer, emphysema (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), Legionnaires’, pneumonia and TB (tuberculosis).

The British Lung Foundation provides practical and emotional support for people affected by lung disease. Their helpline (0845 850 5020) team is made up of Respiratory Nurses, Welfare Benefits Advisers and Counsellors to provide support, and there is also a local support group (called Breathe Easy) that meets up on a monthly basis to socialise, enjoy days out and listen to guest speakers. The BLF also run a pen-pal befriending scheme, awareness and lung-testing events and a web community and online surgery.
