Scotland and Wales have some of the best respiratory medics anywhere in the world, and often lead the way in public health initiatives like the ban on smoking in public places.

But their industrial history and continued high levels of smoking mean that they have some of the highest rates of lung disease anywhere in the world - that’s where we come in.

What we do in Scotland and Wales

  • We support people who have lung disease, their families and carers
  • We raise awareness of lung disease at a local and national level
  • We campaign to make lung disease a national priority
  • We work with other organisations, such as voluntary groups, the NHS, Scottish Parliament and the National Assembly for Wales to improve services across the nations

Our impact in Scotland and Wales

We've achieved so much for better lung health in recent years
