You might have heard about it already but I wanted to let you know about our new campaign.
Almost every day I hear from people who put off going to the doctor when they first started experiencing breathless.
Some thought it was normal – a sign that they were getting older or that they weren’t as fit as they had been. Some were afraid of what the doctor would tell them so they didn’t make an appointment.
Whatever the reason, most of them say they wish they’d got it checked sooner.
Because the earlier you’re diagnosed, the more you can do to stay healthier for longer. Depending on what’s wrong, it might even give you a better chance of fighting it off.
That’s why we’ve launched our new campaign – Listen to your lungs.
If people are getting breathless doing everyday things, we want them to take our breath test. If their breathlessness is nothing to worry about then hopefully it will put their mind at rest. And if there is cause for concern, then they have ammunition to take to their GP and get it checked.
Would you mind sharing the test with your family and friends, via Facebook or Twitter? The more people who hear about this the better.
