EASTWOOD MP Gloria De Piero visited the Breathe Easy support group to mark COPD Awareness Day.
The MP went along to the Victory Club where the group meets to help encourage people to have a breathing test if they suffer problems.
Gloria said: “The group had a number of points they wanted me to raise with the Health Secretary Andrew Lansley, which I shall do immediately. As soon as I receive a reply I will be in touch again”
COPD stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
