Welcome to the British Lung Foundation in the North West region.
Based with the helpline in Liverpool, we cover the North West which has a population of 7.3 million. 10% of the population have COPD and/or Asthma and we have some of the highest prevalence rates in the UK. Hotspot areas identified by the British Lung Foundation include Liverpool, Knowsley, and Manchester to name a few.
We work closely with Respiratory Leaders within the NHS at regional and local level to support their work in improving the quality of services for people with lung disease.
At time of writing we have 30 open and active Breathe Easy self help support groups, all of which are organised and run by fantastic volunteers who have experience of life with lung disease and who are committed to providing support, information, and hope to anyone affected by lung disease. Many of the groups are fortunate to have regular support of healthcare professionals who bring medical expertise to their activities. You will find a full list of our North West groups on the BLF web site.
