The diagnosis of Pulmonary Hypertension is life changing. It can be difficult for many to continue working in the same job or to continue to work at all. For most people this means a reduction in income, and with mortgages, bills, and other living expenses, this can be an extremely stressful time. There is also the burden of expenses related to the condition e.g. travel to and from hospital appointments.

 

It is important to know that people with Pulmonary Hypertension can access a variety of benefits. Information about benefits can be obtained on the links below.
