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. The care that people with a lung condition receive across the region is inconsistent, and patients’ knowledge of treatments and self-management options varies.
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 cover:
Your experiences of involvement in influencing
Developing a local and regional respiratory campaign
You may already be involved as a patient or carer representative, attend a support group, or just interested in knowing more about influencing respiratory care and finding out more about patient involvement in a relaxed, friendly environment.
To book please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07702 591569. The Royal Station Hotel is situated next to Newcastle Central Station and Metro. Free lunch and refreshments provided.
