A quick and easy diagnosis can have a big impact. Dr Luke Daines says “Patients are very receptive when they’re diagnosed, so it’s a real window of opportunity to markedly improve self-management, awareness of their triggers and their adherence to medicine.”

Help support asthma research that could soon make a difference

Many people think researchers work in labs and wear white coats. Luke however does his research using data on a computer. He’s a GP with experience of diagnosing asthma and is developing an easy to use and accurate tool for diagnosing asthma that doctors and nurses could soon be testing.
