Nicola Standring-Brown

Role within the CYP Alliance

I am Co-Clinical Lead for Children and Young People’s Asthma, and am an advanced nurse practitioner working clinically in primary care and I work alongside Dr Sonal Kansra and Deborah Leese to implement the national asthma bundle of care for children and young people.

Why does it matter?

As someone who has lived with asthma since childhood, I understand the impact this condition can have, and know first-hand how much of a difference the right care can make. I feel that our work will support those caring for children and young people with asthma to keep them safe and their asthma well managed so that they are not limited by it.

My impact

I work in primary care where most people with asthma are diagnosed and managed and I am most proud of becoming acting chair of the South Yorkshire respiratory interest group (SYRIG) which serves to bring together South Yorkshire’s respiratory interested health professionals for networking and education.

Something a bit different…

I enjoy indoor climbing, good books, and hot cups of tea.
