Service summary

Asthma UK

Asthma is a condition that affects your airways – the small tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs. The more you understand the condition, the better position you’re in to work out with your healthcare team how to manage it well. Managing it well means that asthma will affect your life as little as possible. Every 10 seconds someone in the UK has a potentially fatal asthma attack. Every single day the lives of three families are devastated by the death of a loved one from asthma. Tragically, the majority of these deaths could be prevented right now with the right basic care. However, others still suffer with asthma so severe that current treatments don’t work. This has to change. That’s why Asthma UK exists. We work to stop asthma attacks and, ultimately, cure asthma by funding world leading research and scientists, campaigning for change and supporting people with asthma to reduce their risk of a potentially life threatening asthma attack.
