The global Covid-19 pandemic is a worrying time for all of us but particularly people living with lung conditions like asthma and COPD. If you are one of them, it is important to follow the latest government guidelines (https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus) and to do whatever you can to protect yourself from becoming infected with Coronavirus. The government lists people with severe long-term lung conditions, like severe asthma, severe COPD and cystic fibrosis, as being at particularly high risk.

Respiratory screening is a way of testing how well your lungs are functioning and diagnosing conditions that can reduce lung function, such as asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis and chronic bronchitis. It may also be used to check for occupation-related lung problems or to assess your lung function prior to major surgery.
