This is the first time we have included someone who suffers and can speak from direct personal experience of the disease – and he received a fantastic level of interest and barrage of questions from the pupils, and gave frank and meaningful replies, providing genuine insight into the impact of COPD on both quality of life and close family.

Many thanks Martin, your input was most appreciated by pupils and BREATH team alike! Thanks to Phyllis Murphie and Dr Davidson for helping organise.

Please see NHS Dumfries & Galloway video on pulmonary rehabilitation (featuring Mr Charters).
