This has made a considerable difference to my life. I feel that I’m in control of my illness now, rather than my illness being in control of me. It’s a brilliant service because I know I have my medical team in the background. If anything goes wrong, they are there to support me and I trust them completely. I wish more people with long-term heart and lung diseases knew about this service. My condition is more stable and I am more active than I used to be.
We would like more people living with long-term heart and lung disease in Hull to join the free service and benefit from the opportunities to improve quality of life. We also encourage doctors in Hull to refer suitable patients to the service and help create capacity in the wider healthcare system.
