Hello , I'm new here and have bronchiectasis. I am a member of Tayside Bronchiectasis Support (TaBS) and care about linking with other fellow sufferers in Scotland. Tayside includes Perth and Kinross geographically, as well as the city of Dundee, and we have two major hospitals, Perth Royal Infirmary and Ninewells in Dundee. Networking is important to me as we need all the support we can get for spreading the word about bronchiectasis and for building friendship links. The respiratory departments at both NHS sites above are brilliant for helping patients with the burden of treating lung conditions such as bronchiectasis. I hope to contribute to posts here from time to time and look forward to an exchange of views.
