Raising awareness of COPD

Posted on in Services

The chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) outreach team from South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will be in the Parkway Centre, Coulby Newham, on Wednesday 20 November to help raise awareness of lung problems.

Experts will be on hand to measure lung function, provide smoking cessation support and raise awareness of COPD.

The event is being held to mark World COPD day. Information, leaflets and advice will be available from 9am to 12pm.

Janet Leight, respiratory specialist nurse lead said: “Our aim is to try to promote disease prevention and raise awareness of how smoking raises your risk of suffering from COPD.”
