David’s story

David Haslam's life changed when he was diagnosed with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

David was breathless, tired and constantly coughing. He was also worried as he didn’t understand what was happening to him.

David was referred by a health professional for Health Technology, a simple to use technology that works alongside an existing TV.  Each day David checks his blood pressure, weight and oxygen levels.  This information is then automatically sent through to a team of health professionals who will monitor David’s condition.  Should there be any concerns about his readings, the team would contact David with advice and support.

David says, ‘Health Technology really couldn’t be simpler to use – nobody should be put off by the fact that it uses technology, it really is easy to understand,  It’s brillant, it has given me and my family such peace of mind, knowing that help is there.
