Better care across the system for children and young people with asthma.
Healthcare professionals, school staff, parents, carers, children and young people are encouraged to use our toolkit to ensure young people and children with asthma have the best care and experiences in London. It can help organisations implement London’s asthma ambitions and London’s asthma standards for children and young people.

Endorsed by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and the Royal College of Physicians (RCP).

RCPCH has updated their guidance on which children should be “shielding”. Louise Fleming has provided a summary: most asthmatics do not need to continue shielding. Those with severe asthma – i.e on a biologic or maintenance prednisolone –  should be considered on a case by case basis. Download the full guidance.
