New call for evidence: Deadline 18 May 2018
The Taskforce for Lung Health, a group of 25 representatives from the lung health sector, is encouraging clinicians, researchers and the public to share their evidence of ways to improve the nation’s lung health and tackle lung disease more successfully.
PCRS-UK is an active member of this Taskforce and is keen to ensure that primary and community care perspectives are well represented in its work. Any information submitted by PCRS-UK members will inform the development of the Taskforce’s forthcoming five-year plan for improving lung health in England, endorsed by the whole respiratory community.
‘It is so important that professionals in the lung health field submit evidence in their areas of expertise, particularly where there is less awareness of the issues. It’s absolutely time that something is done to address lung disease’ says PCRS-UK chair, Noel Baxter, urging primary care clinicians to share their experience of working with patients with lung disease.

Treatment and medicines; living with a lung disease; and end of life
