Right to Rehab

Today on World COPD day we’re highlighting the massive increase of people living with this incurable lung condition – 26% more than in 2011.

We estimate that 60,000 people can’t get the rehab they need to live life to the full. We’re calling on the Scottish Government to create a Right to Pulmonary Rehab to give everyone the best chance.
