NICHS runs a number of respiratory support groups and services across Northern Ireland to help people and their families to meet the challenges of living with chest, heart or stroke conditions.
Living with a long term health condition such as chest, heart or stroke illness, affects you not just physically, but also emotionally and socially. Whilst timely and effective medical intervention is essential, people with long term health conditions also need support and guidance to manage their conditions, and lives, on a daily and ongoing basis.
