Podcast: Singing for breathing

Catching up with the Cheyne Gang - an innovative group using singing to help individuals experiencing breathlessness

Thursday 16th May 2019

Ahead of the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland annual conference 2019, we spoke to three people who have been instrumental in establishing a group that uses singing to help Glasgow residents breathe a little easier. 

Under the umbrella of the Cheyne Gang, PhD student Sophie Boyd, practice nurse Janice Paterson and community links practitioner Deborah Hamilton, have been running singing sessions for individuals suffering from breathlessness – something which can stem from a variety of conditions, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or anxiety.

Members of the Cheyne Gang will be in attendance at the conference. Follow us on twitter for updates throughout the event.
