Improving the Asthma care is an integral part of the transfromation plan, and a work programme has been designed to improve Asthma care in our region in line with the standards set out in the NHS England and Improvement national bundle of care for children and young people with Asthma.

There are 5 main components of the Asthma national bundle of care:

A.   Environmental Impacts

B.   Accurate and Early Diagnosis

C.   Effective Preventative Medicine

D.  Managing Exacerbations 

E.   Severe Asthma

These elements are supported by two golden threads:
  1. Asthma Competencies, Training and Education Needs
  2. Data and Digital
