We are raising awareness of asthma and Chronic obstructive airways disease. Approx 2 million people have COPD and have not been diagnosed. Both are relatively common illnesses affecting and lung, which can be diagnosed and treated.  If you suffer from breathlessness or wheezing then you could suffer from these. Let your practice know and we can arrange some further investigations. If you are aged over the age of 35 and a smoker (or ex-smoker), it may be worth arranging for some screening tests.
