Healthy Lungs event raises awareness of the importance of early diagnosis
Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Halton Borough Council is hailing a ‘Healthy Lungs’ event held at Halton Stadium in June a success. The event was well attended and dozens of attendees received information on diagnosing respiratory conditions and tips on correctly using an inhaler.
Scott Hawkes and Paul Maines, Respiratory Physiologists at LHCH said: “We were delighted to have been given the opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of the service we provide at LHCH and in the community which ensures essential diagnosis and treatment of lung disease. We hope that those who attended found the session informative. Molly Hancox, Assistant Physiologist also facilitated a number of Spirometry tests for those attending the event.”
In 2018/19 the LHCH service saw around 18,777 patients for Spirometry tests alone across all services in both the community and at the hospital. It is an important first line test for the early diagnosis of lung disease.
