“When you have an asthma attack you have feelings of panic, you can’t breathe, you think you’re going to die actually. You just can’t breathe.”
Christine is one of 4036 asthma patients in Greater Manchester taking part in The Salford Lung Study, a ground breaking clinical trial that explores how effective a medicine for asthma is in everyday life.
“I wanted to get involved just to help pay a little bit back really. I’ve had years of treatment and benefitted from the National Health System. I had all this medication and stuff, and I just wanted to give a bit back.”
Christine tells us what it’s like to be part of a clinical trial.
