The Right to Pulmonary Rehab

On World COPD Day 2018 Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland launches new figures showing the variation of support and treatment available to people in Scotland living with chest conditions like COPD.

To help end the variation, we are calling on the Scottish Government to invest in a universal and equal Right to Pulmonary Rehab.

RESpe has launched

Respiratory Education to Support Professionals through eLearning (RESPe) is a free, interactive, e-learning resource which provides a basic knowledge of common respiratory conditions. The aim of the resource is to improve patient/client care by increasing the knowledge and skills of any member of health and social care staff working with people living with respiratory conditions in health, social or private care settings.

Everyone Has The Right
To Live Life To The Full

Across Scotland, over 1 million people – that’s one in five of the population – are living with the effects of serious chest and heart conditions and stroke.

After a diagnosis of a chest or heart condition or a stroke, many people experience fear and isolation and struggle with the impact on their lives. Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland won’t stand for that. The care and support we deliver every day ensures everyone can live the life they want to.

Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland urges the Health Secretary to bring life-changing stroke procedure back into Scottish hospitals

The call comes after it was revealed earlier this year that a procedure called thrombectomy is no longer available to patients in Scotland but is still available elsewhere in the UK. In 2017, only 13 people received this life-changing treatment but as many as 600 would have benefited.
