Involving people with asthma in your research

As the leading asthma patient organisation in the UK, Asthma UK is uniquely placed to ensure that research can have the biggest impact on the lives of patients

We have a network of around 100,000 people with asthma with whom we collaborate to generate bespoke insights. We also work with an expert patient panel who can share their own experiences to support and add value to your research.

  • Quantitative insights through surveys and polling
  • Qualitative insights through interviews
  • Qualitative insights through focus groups and workshops
  • User testing
  • Dissemination of your results
  • Access to our Expert Patient Panel

The results of the questionnaire fielded by Asthma UK were invaluable in strengthening a current grant application in this area. The ability to get feedback on a research question from the people it affects is critical in developing patient focussed investigations.

It is always a pleasure to work with the dedicated, energetic and interested team at Asthma UK. Better care for people with asthma is at the heart of everything they do. Thank you."
