Dr Andrew Whittamore of Asthma and Lung UK and Felicity Payne join us to talk about Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD which is the name for a group of lung conditions that cause breathing difficulties.
Felicity has emphysema which comes under the umbrella of COPD, and explains how she has grown used to the condition, after initially finding herself feeling isolated with many unanswered questions. Felicity shares the activities she does to keep her lungs as strong and healthy as she can.
Dr Andrew Whittamore provides us with a wealth of knowledge about the condition and the different pathways to support.
