Clean air

Across the UK air pollution is at lethal levels and too little is being done to tackle it. We’re calling on the government to publish plans to say how they’re going to keep us safe.

Restoring care

Lockdown had an enormous impact on the care of people with lung disease. We’re working to make sure that people with lung disease are at the heart of any plans to restore healthcare services post-COVID.

Taskforce for lung health

We organise the Taskforce for Lung Health, a coalition of 30 organisations and individuals who care about respiratory health. Together, we’re fighting for quick and accurate diagnosis, better medicines management, and access to pulmonary rehabilitation.

Making lung health a priority

In 2019, we launched an open letter to the prime minister to make lung health a priority and NHS England chose respiratory as a priority area in their long-term plan for the first time.

Smoking cessation

Our research shows that not enough healthcare professionals are trained to help people quit smoking. We’ve been working to improve access to stop smoking service.
