The ALLIANCE respiratory network is part of work to ensure lived experience informs developing health policy.

The ALLIANCE hosts a network for people affected by respiratory conditions as part of work surrounding the Scottish Government Respiratory Care Action Plan (RCAP).

The RCAP aims to drive improvements in the diagnosis, care, treatment and support of people living with respiratory conditions in Scotland. The plan focusses specifically on the five conditions that make up over 90% of the resources required to manage respiratory conditions in Scotland; asthma, bronchiectasis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) and obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome, however, those affected by other respiratory conditions are welcome to join the network.

The network provides opportunities to stay up to date with and feed back to the Scottish Government as the RCAP is implemented.
