Respiratory Support service

We have recently launched a NEW Respiratory Support Service in South Lanarkshire to support people living with long-term chest conditions in the area.

This service aims to help patients through a telephone befriending service. Other support options may include patient and carer meetings, small support groups and a newsletter.

We are looking for volunteers to help us run this service and support people living locally who feel isolated and lonely as a result of their illness. The volunteers will offer one to one support and companionship to people through telephone befriending or in small support groups. If you are interested in volunteering your time or want to find out more about this service, please contact Wendy Armitage by email or call 0131 225 6963.
