Did you know that today 3 people have died from respiratory disease in the UK?
Do you know that more than 800,000 people per year in the UK die from respiratory disease?
Did you know that more than 1,000,000 people per year in the UK are admitted into A& E due to contracting one or
more forms of respiratory disease/infections? At a cost of £4.7 billion per year ?
Did you know that many of these deaths are needlessly caused due to lack of research,
investment, infrastructure and awareness?
All this has led to the UK being one of the worst countries treating respiratory disease of
the range of OECD countries…and in the UK context, being labelled as ‘shocking’ by anAll Party Parliamentary Group on
Respiratory Health that ‘respiratory matters are a poor relation to the other two Big Killers in the UK , cancer and cardiac’.
Through creating a local Dorset group of activities and working with Royal Bournemouth Respiratory teams we have a chance to progress a milestone
change to address these voids in care in our own county.
We canraise funds for equipment needed that is not statutorily expected of the Trust;
awareness of lung conditions to communities of public, political, academic representatives;
a support group for carers
a visitor group specifically for inpatients and outpatients of respiratory diseases.
