I was wondering whether you could help me with something. The Department of Health are going to be running a campaign on breathlessness. They want to ensure that people don’t wait until it’s too late to get their breathlessness checked by a doctor and have asked for help to find case studies for their awareness materials.
I am looking for stories of someone who went to their GP with breathlessness and this helped them to get an early diagnosis of either COPD or lung cancer. I know this is a tall order as too many people are still incorrectly diagnosed at first, but if you think that your story fits this bill then I would love to hear from you.
Unfortunately time is a bit tight as we need to find someone this week. If you decide to take part then we will only need a paragraph or two about your story and a picture of you. If you would like to know more then please email me on PatientVoice@blf.org.uk.
Thanks for reading!
