AGM and a long chat

Once again we have had a successful year, recruiting new members, raising money and campaigning for better services for people living with lung conditions. Following on from our "Meet the Patients" events at the Welsh Assembly, pulmonary rehab is becoming more widespread across Wales. All that lobbying of Am's does pay off.
Chris Mulholland talked to us about the work of British Lung Foundation Wales in improving services with emphasis on early diagnosis for all lung diseases. We also talked about all the Breathe Easy groups, in the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Health Board area, working together for improved pulmonary rehab services and follow on exercise programmes available to all. If we can achieve that it would be wonderful and a good way to spend the money we have raised over the year.
