A million potential asthma misdiagnoses.

More than a million adults may be wrongly diagnosed with asthma warns an NHS watchdog.

The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has revealed today that a third of adults with the condition may be receiving unnecessary medication as a result of the misdiagnosis.
