Lung transplant support groups

These groups offer a safe and supportive environment for you to talk about what matters to you.

This page provides information about local and national support groups for:

  • Patients on the lung or combined heart and lung transplant waiting list
  • Lung and combined heart and lung transplant recipients
  • Family, supporters, and carers

Each group is unique. Some groups are supported by health care professionals, whilst others are entirely patient led.
