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.

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 last 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.
