Did you know that lung conditions are the third biggest cause of ‘sick days’ in the UK? I wonder whether this would still be the case if people were diagnosed more quickly and given more support to managing their conditions at home.
Our policy team is looking into the impact of lung disease on working life and would really appreciate your help.
•How does (or did) your lung condition affect your work life?
•Did you have to leave work because of your lung condition?
•Or were you able to get back into work once you’d started treatment? If so, it would be great to know how you managed that and what support you had.
We’d like to use the information you give us to support our upcoming report about the economic cost of lung disease. If we can add stories and quotes from people living with these conditions, it will have far more impact with the people who can make a difference.
Thank you for your help guys!
