Respiratory Patient – Carer Network

The British Lung Foundation and Academic Health Science Network for North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC) would like to extend an invitation to people across the region who have experience of living with a lung condition.
Patient participation and involvement is important to the NHS and other care organisations. This respiratory network for people living with lung disease will provide you with information, ideas and an opportunity to share your experience.

The event will be looking at:

  • Your experiences of involvement in influencing
  • How to use the media (including social media) to get your voice heard
