A support group for those affected by lung conditions is now up and running here and is ready to welcome new members.

Patients, carers, family and friends of those affected by any form of lung condition are invited to come along to meetings where they will have the chance to hear from experts about how to manage such conditions.

Dr Penny Woods, chief executive of the British Lung Foundation, said: “It is great news that we have been able to extend our Breathe Easy support group network to Malvern.

“Our groups up and down the country do such a vital job in providing support, advice and friendship to thousands of people affected by lung conditions.

“Through raising awareness of lung disease in their local areas, and supporting nationwide BLF campaigns for better laws, services and research, Breathe Easy groups also help make a difference to the lives of thousands of others affected by lung disease throughout the entire country.”

The meetings at Malvern Cube will be held on the second Wednesday of every month between 2pm and 4pm.
