Roadshow for the breathless

Share this article

People who suffer from breathlessness are being encouraged to visit their GP, as this could be a symptom of something more serious.

This is the aim behind a Public Health England roadshow, which will be at Luton’s Arndale Centre from Monday to Wednesday (February 16 - 18).

Statistics reveal there are more than 8,000 people in the town with either heart or lung disease but it’s estimated there are 3,800 more who don’t realise they have a problem. The roadshow aims to raise awareness, to reduce the number of undiagnosed cases and ensure appropriate treatment.
