“Are you feeling breathless?”


Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, and Shadow Health Minister, supported the British Lung Foundation’s lung health awareness campaign by taking their online ‘breath test’ at the Houses of Parliament and encouraging others to do the same.

The charity’s UK-wide campaign aims to raise awareness that feeling out of breath doing everyday tasks could be a sign of lung disease.

Justin said:

“Completing the BLF’s online ‘breath test’ is a really easy way of checking your lung health. I’d encourage everyone to try it. It’ll either give you peace of mind or start you on a path to help manage your breathlessness.

“There are thousands of local people with a lung condition, but not everyone’s aware they have one. You really should ‘listen to your lungs’ if you feel breathless.

“Together we can ensure that those people who are suffering with an undiagnosed lung condition seek help and get the support they need. If you’re even slightly worried a loved one has been feeling increasingly short of breath – please make sure they take the online breath test or visit their GP."
