About our research
Research makes the NHS better at treating patients. Our aim is to find suitable medications or alternative therapies to relieve the symptoms of chronic cough.
You may be asked if you would be willing to take part in research studies such as completing questionnaires or clinical trials of new cough medicines.
About the clinic
The chronic cough clinic has been established for over 15 years and is hosted by the Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust. We are one of a number of specialist chronic cough clinics in the United Kingdom.
Our clinic currently treats approximately 400 new patients each year with hundreds of patients under regular follow up.
We're fighting for you to find a cure for your chronic cough!
As far as we are aware, chronic coughing alone does not put individuals at extra risk of catching coronavirus or becoming seriously ill if they caught coronavirus.
However, some patients with chronic cough also suffer from lung problems like asthma, COPD and other problems with their health that may put them at increased risk. A list of these conditions and how to protect yourself can be found on the NHS website. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/advice-for-people-at-high-risk/
