British Lung Foundation Report

EDM number 810 in 2014-15, proposed by Alan Meale on 23/02/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases and Health education and preventive medicine.

That this House is aware that rates of the chronic lung disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, which causes increased scarring of people's lungs, have increased by more than sixfold over the past 40 years, today accounting for the deaths of around 5,000 people a year in the UK; notes that the disease often kills with devastating speed, with more than half of sufferers losing their lives within three years after diagnosis; recognises the outstanding efforts of the British Lung Foundation (BLF) which works tirelessly to raise awareness of this appalling disease and the needs of its sufferers and their carers who often do not receive the support they need and deserve; and calls on the Government to act on the findings and recommendations of the BLF new patient experience report on this serious illness and develop ways to improve public awareness, medical research and patient treatment, support and care.

This motion has been signed by a total of 47 MPs.
