On Thursday 9 March, Royal Brompton Hospital hosted a café scientifique event for patients and the public. The topic for the event was chronic cough, a condition characterised by a cough that lasts for longer than eight weeks and for some people can go on for years.
Dr James Hull, a consultant respiratory physician who specialises in cough and Dr Julia Selby, clinical lead speech and language therapist for voice, led the discussion into the latest research into chronic cough as well techniques to help alleviate symptoms.
The event was well attended with a mixture of patients and the general public.
Dr James Hull said: "It was a great opportunity to speak with patients and the public about this chronic and debilitating condition and to highlight the research we’re undertaking here at Royal Brompton"
