Emma Thompson joined the PCRS Patient Reference Group in July 2023.
A severe, brittle asthmatic, Emma is motivated to use her experiences (both positive and negative) to help change the narrative for others with lung conditions.
Emma worked as a patient voice on the highly successful Accelerated Access Collaborative, Rapid Uptake Programme in improving asthma diagnosis and outcomes through increased access to FeNO testing in PCNs throughout England.
Using this experience, Emma currently sits on the Clinical Policy Board for Respiratory as well as the Asthma + Lung UK Expert Patient Panel and is looking forward to new challenges and opportunities with the PCRS.
Emma lives in Wiltshire with her husband and 2 children and in her spare time, enjoys playing the piano, cooking and completing jigsaw puzzles.
