Lung conditions

Respiratory medicine

As a key part of their Breathe Easy Week, the British Lung Foundation asked me to update their patient and carer guide on asbestos and cancer (mesothelioma). The work included research into policy across the four nations. I also updated BLF's patient information on interstitial lung diseases (commended in the 2014 BMA Patient Information Awards) and pulmonary embolism. All projects were required to meet the Information Standard.
