If you have a hospital stay due to COPD, you can access Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland’s (CHSS) telephone support service.

Calls are tailored to your needs. CHSS healthcare professionals can help with things like:
- self-management of your condition
- emotional support
- financial guidance
Call the free advice line on 0808 801 0899.
