Around 1 in 12 adults in the UK is being treated for asthma.
We have a small friendly team of asthma nurse specialists who provide independent confidential advice and support to people with asthma and their families, friends and carers. We also offer advice and support to healthcare professionals. Our friendly team of expert nurses can give advice and information tailored to you about: diagnosis, treatment, managing symptoms, dealing with the side effects of asthma medicines.
If you've just been diagnosed with asthma, you may have many questions you want answers to. Being diagnosed with any health condition can be worrying or even frightening, but Asthma UK is here to help take you through your asthma journey: what asthma is, how it is treated and how to manage your asthma.
