Understanding childhood asthma in London
We are working with NHS Harrow CCG to audit management of children and young people’s asthma care across London. The aim is highlight potential preventable problems related to managing asthma attacks and stimulate change by health professionals in the treatment of attack. In particular, by assessing all patients within a few days of treatment for an attack, optimising treatment and reducing future risk.
