ILD Support Group meeting

18 March 2020

Following the cancellation of the February meeting we were determined to find a way to ensure that the group could continue to meet safely. To this end we held our first virtual webinar on the 18th March, which was well attended, with attendees logging in with a variety of devices, including laptops, iPads, iPhones and Android. We were also delighted to welcome Faye Tobbey who took the group through a series of Pulmonary Rehabilitation exercises, which the group were able to take part in from the comfort of their own homes.

The group also discussed how they were being affected by the developing Covid-19 emergency and what changes they were instigating to reduce any risks of infection. It was also apparent that there was a greater need for the group to keep in closer contact and to share information, hint and tips on safeguarding ourselves, our families and friends. It was decided to meet once a fortnight rather than once a month during this special emergency period.
