A unified voice
The Taskforce plan to bring together a unified voice of patients, carers and health professionals and to drive change for improving lung health in England. Independent of government, the objective of the Taskforce is to develop a 5-year plan which is endorsed by the whole respiratory community. The plan will look at prevention, diagnosis, treatment and medicines, living with a lung disease and end-of-life care as well as coming up with recommendations about each topic.
Their aim is a single plan that brings together recommendations for improving lung health across all services, and for that the plan to be supported by the government and implemented by all relevant bodies, including NHS England, Public Health England and local authorities.
