Northern Ireland Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group

The Northern Ireland Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group welcomes you to their Support Group meetings. The group aims to provide an opportunity for people affected by pulmonary fibrosis to meet, learn and share experiences. Anyone affected by pulmonary Fibrosis including carers, family and friends are welcome to come along and join the group.

At the April meeting Karen Diamond (singing coach) presented a singing to help breathing session and Lorna Mclauchlan from Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis attended the meeting to talk to the group about the work the charity is doing to support people affected by the condition. The meeting was well attended and there were lots of questions and answers plus laughs and fun singing along with Karen and learning the basis for using the voice as a therapy.
