The #AskAboutAsthma campaign wants to encourage health professionals, children and young people and their families to ASK for three simple effective interventions to help them control their asthma. They should:
- have an asthma management plan.
- be able to use their inhaler effectively
- have an annual asthma review (as a minimum)
You can support the campaign instantly now by retweeting the following tweet: https://twitter.com/HealthyLDN/status/1151175735601745920.
This year #AskAboutAsthma is focusing on #OneThingLDN – asking Londoners what they have done, will do or would like to see happen to improve asthma care or air quality for CYP in London. This could be through sending tweeting us using #OneThingLDN, writing a blog on your website (or for ours) with a link to the campaign, or encouraging your staff to produce their own #OneThingLDN (more detail available on HLP’s website). If you would like to hold your own local #AskAboutAsthma event, we would love to hear from you and help publicise it.
Healthy London Partnership has developed a set of ambitions and standards and an online London asthma toolkit for how asthma care should be delivered across the city. Specific information on the asthma toolkit is available here pertinent to commissioners and primary care.
