At Asthma + Lung UK, we believe that every breath matters - and that the right to breathe freely applies to everybody, regardless of income, age, ethnicity, gender, or background.
In the UK, respiratory care simply isn’t good enough. Even before Covid-19, NHS hospital admissions for lung conditions were rising three times faster than average admissions. Lung disease is now the third most common cause of death, costing the NHS more than £9 billion every year.
At Asthma + Lung UK we listen to people affected by lung conditions to understand their views and needs – and this informs everything we do.
