Personal profile


Dr Luke Daines graduated from the University of Edinburgh with MBChB in 2010. During his medical studies he completed an intercalated BSc in Anatomical Sciences at Bristol University.

Completing his GP training in 2015, Luke joined the University of Edinburgh as an Academic Clinical Fellow in General Practice. During his first year he completed a qualitative study exploring patient views on supported self-management for asthma, part of the IMP2ART programme of work.

Luke contributed to the diagnosis chapter of the British Thoracic Society / Scottish Intercollegiate Guideline Network asthma guideline in 2016. His interest in asthma diagnosis was further developed during a Master’s in Public Health (2016/17) when he completed a travel fellowship at the Technical University of Munich to investigate the importance of alternative reference standards in evaluating diagnostic tests for asthma.

Luke’s current research seeks to improve the accuracy with which a diagnosis of asthma can be made in clinical practice. He was awarded a Chief Scientist Office Clinical Academic Fellowship (2017) for “deriving and validating a clinical prediction rule for the diagnosis of asthma in primary care”. The implementation of a clinical prediction rule for asthma diagnosis will be further explored and developed through a collaborative project with Optimum Patient Care and Tactuum funded by Asthma UK / Innovate UK (2018).

Having submitted his PhD in January 2021, Luke started to work for the post-hospitalisation COVID (PHOSP-COVID) consortium, within the airways and data working groups. He also works 1 session a week as a clinical tutor on the University of Edinburgh's Health Care Professional medical curriculum.

Alongside his academic commitments, Luke works as a GP for NHS Lothian, in the COVID triage hub and as a clinical lead in respiratory prescribing.
