THE RIGHT TO PULMONARY REHAB
On World COPD Day 2018 Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland launches a new report showing variable levels of support and treatment available to people in Scotland living with chest conditions like COPD.
To help end the variation, we are calling on the Scottish Government to invest in a universal and equal Right to Pulmonary Rehab.
Pulmonary Rehabilitation helps improves people’s physical and mental health, and also saves the NHS money by reducing hospital admissions and halving the time spent in hospital. Yet the provision of Rehab programmes across the country remains very patchy.
