    It's rare that I post personal information of any kind on a website such as this, but this really irked me so felt it was worth sharing. Context: I've been an Asthma sufferer since the age of 3 years old. I know exactly how to manage my condition having had it for over 50 years, and have always used a blue ventolin inhaler as and when necessary (perhaps once every 2-3 months). I have not had any serious issues with my Asthma for at least 20 years, and then only in Hayfever season. Issue: I only renew my inhaler when it expires, every 2 years or so. Therefore it is not listed on my repeat

    More than a million people in the UK have experienced life-threatening asthma attacks after cutting back on medicine, heating or food amid the soaring cost of living crisis, a survey suggests. One in five (20%) people living with asthma in the UK – of which there are 5.4 million – have had an attack as a result of changes they have been forced to make due to rising energy, food and household bills, according to the research by Asthma + Lung UK. Fuel poverty campaigners described the figures as “distressing”. Almost half of the 3,600 people with lung conditions such as asthma, chronic

    Women with asthma are twice as likely to die from an asthma attack compared with men in the UK, new figures show as health experts called for urgent research into the condition’s sex-related differences. They are more likely to have the condition, more likely to need hospital treatment for it and more likely to die from an attack, Asthma + Lung UK said. Over the past five years women have accounted for more than two-thirds of asthma deaths in the UK. The charity said the current “one size fits all” approach to asthma treatment is “not working” because it does not take into account th

    Four in ten people are not seeking help from their GP because they are afraid to be a burden on the NHS during the pandemic, polling by NHS England reveals. The findings – from a survey of 1,000 people – are the latest in a wave of evidence that fewer people are seeking care for illnesses other than those related to coronavirus during the pandemic. GP online reported on 20 April that data collected by the RCGP showed a 25% reduction in routine clinical activity in general practice, and figures from Public Health England (PHE) and the British Heart Foundation show that A&E attenda

    Better use of data is essential to speed up diagnosis, research new treatments, plan better NHS services and monitor the safety of drugs. And yet, more than two thirds of the population feel they don’t know how patient data is used in the NHS. These animations have been developed in partnership with charities, patients and clinicians. Find out why and how patient data is used.

    Children with poorly controlled asthma are up to six times more likely to be admitted to hospital with Covid than those without the condition, research has suggested. Scientists involved in the study said 5 to 17-year-olds in this category should be considered a priority for Covid vaccination. About 9,000 children in Scotland would benefit from the jab, researchers said. Vaccines are offered to the over-12s in Scotland, but not to younger children. In the study, poorly controlled asthma was defined as a prior hospital admission for the condition, or being prescribed at least two

    A promise to ensure that people with severe asthma and smokers who want to quit can get the drugs they need has been broken by ministers and the NHS, a health service report reveals. Health charities criticised the persistent lack of access to vital medications for patients in England as very worrying and warned that it could damage the health of those affected. In 2019 the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), NHS England, Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) and makers of branded medicines signed an agreement, called the voluntary scheme, to increase the

    People previously admitted to hospital or needing "continuous or repeated" steroid use because of asthma are to be prioritised for the Covid vaccine. The most severe cases will fall into priority-group four, the "clinically extremely vulnerable", who should have received a letter advising they shield. And the government has now confirmed the rest who meet the above category will be included in group six, the clinically "at risk", including some but not all those usually eligible for a free flu jab. It follows patients' calls for clarity. The government said it was following

    The frameworks are comprehensive and include: Comprehensive search tools to risk stratify patients – built for EMIS and SystmOne. Pathways that prioritise patients for follow up, support remote delivery of care, and identify what elements of long-term condition care can be delivered by staff such as Health Care Assistants and link workers. Scripts and protocols to guide Health Care Assistants and others in their consultations. Training for staff to deliver education, self-management support and brief interventions. Training includes health coaching and motivational inte

    Children with asthma are at risk of avoidable deaths in England because of poor NHS systems and a failure to appreciate the dangers posed by the condition. A new investigation by NHS safety watchdog the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) has revealed a series of risks to children with asthma, as concerns emerge of the impact of the pandemic on asthma patients more generally. The latest inquiry was sparked by the deaths of three children between 2014 and 2017. All were caused by asthma attacks which were later the subject of warnings by coroners. In each case HSIB said

    The West of England's A&S-SIP ambitions: Support an increase in the proportion of patients in acute hospitals receiving every element (for which they are eligible) of the British Thoracic Society COPD discharge care bundle. Support an increase in the proportion of eligible sites adopting three evidence-based tracheostomy safety interventions. From April 2021, support an increase in the proportion of patients in acute hospitals receiving every element (for which they are eligible) of the asthma discharge care bundle. From April 2021, to support an increase in the p

    Safety recommendations HSIB recommends that NHS England and NHS Improvement, as a commissioning body, supports local systems to implement evidence-based interventions, such as standardised information and wheeze management plans, for the parents/ carers of pre-school children. This will be undertaken in conjunction with the British Paediatric Respiratory Society. HSIB recommends that NHS England and NHS Improvement reviews the recommendations arising from the National Review of Asthma Deaths to prioritise and ensure the implementation of recommendations that are outstanding.

    The UK has the highest death rate for lung conditions in western Europe, research reveals, prompting calls from health leaders for urgent action to tackle the “national scandal”. More than 100,000 people in the UK die from conditions including asthma attacks, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and pneumonia every year, according to data analysis by the charity Asthma and Lung UK. Across Europe, only Turkey has a higher respiratory death rate than the UK, analysis of data up to 2018 shows. It described the UK figures as “shameful”, and said that lung conditi

    The Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) would like to invite you to their webinar marking the launch of the new report ‘Management of chronic asthma in children aged 16 years and under’. Asthma is the most common lung disease in the UK, and diagnosis and management of the condition, particularly in children and young people can be complex. The case study in our investigation features a 5 year old who had a near fatal asthma attack. In this webinar you will hear from families, our HSIB investigators and from experts in respiratory illness including Dr Jen Townshend and
