COPD Support Ireland has 5 simple “asks” that will improve the quality of life for people living with COPD. We ask that you download and print the leaflet and give it to any candidate who calls to your door seeking your vote in the election 2016.
The 5 asks are:
1. Spirometry testing to be made available in primary care.
2. Pulmonary Rehabilitation Programmes to be made available in every acute hospital
3.Medical cards to be provided for people living with COPD
4. Outreach and integrated care programmes to be attached to every acute hospital
5. National advice and information helpline to be established for COPD
