Charity makes a conference call

THE British Lung Foundation (BLF) is holding a series of conferences throughout the UK to celebrate the charity’s 25th anniversary.

I would like to invite readers to attend the BLF North Conference on Tuesday, March 15, at the Hilton Hotel, Gateshead.

We have an interesting programme with respiratory experts from the region and guest speakers from the Department of Health, NHS North East and Dame Helena Shovelton, chief executive of the British Lung Foundation.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about lung conditions and treatment, including occupational lung disease, bronchiectasis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma and obstructive sleep apnoea.

For more information or to register please contact the BLF north region office on (0191) 263 0276 or visit the BLF website at
