Recently diagnosed?

If you’ve just heard that you or someone close to you has lung disease, you can turn to us for expert information, advice and support.

We know how it can feel to be diagnosed with a lung condition.

You might be confused about what caused the illness. Desperate for information about treatment. Or you may just want to talk it through with someone who understands, so you feel more in control of your situation.

We are here with all the information, advice and support you need.

Expert information

You can read all about the causes, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of the condition that affects you, both online and in print.

View our full range of publications.

We can also help you to live well with lung disease, with advice on managing your condition and tips on exercise, healthy eating, going on holiday and much more.

We are a member of the Information Standard so you can be sure that our information is reliable and trust-worthy.

Support and understanding

We can give you so much support too. The specialist team of nurses and advisers on our helpline are dedicated to answering your questions.

Call the team on 03000 030 555, or send an email.  Ringing the helpline never costs more than a local call and is usually free, even from a mobile. Lines are open from 10am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.

Chatting to people who know exactly what you’re going through can really help too.

Take a look at our online community, where you can share your experiences and ask questions to people who’ve been there.
