Can you help BLF tell politicians that we need a better plan for treating people with lung conditions?
As part of our Battle for breath campaign ( blf.org.uk/take-action/camp... ) , we want the government and NHS to sit down with us and come up with a long-term plan for the nation’s lung health. The government has already made 5-year plans for cancer and mental health. We need to have a plan for lung health too.
Lung disease costs the UK £11 billion each year ( blf.org.uk/what-we-do/our-r... ) Last year, we found that lung disease mortality rates haven’t improved in 10 years. The UK now has the 4th highest mortality rates in Europe. But something can be done.
By coming up with a plan, we can improve care for people with lung conditions, help prevent people from getting lung conditions in the first place, and spend every penny effectively too.
And you can help.

It’ll only take 2 minutes. Make sure you tell them any personal stories that might help persuade them.
Thank you for your help and support.
