Combat my Cough!
We hold an event each year to keep our patients up to date with the work we are doing in our clinic and through our research to find a cure for chronic cough. Combat my Cough is an opportunity to listen to and talk to the research team, but also for you to meet and talk to other sufferers with the condition.
Each year we try to make the content of the event as interesting and as engaging as possible. Here's just some of the highlights since the launch of Combat my Cough in 2013!
