Parents of children with asthma in the Airedale district urged to obtain an individual management plan
2:00pm Saturday 24th August 2013 in Keighley
Parents of children with asthma in the Airedale district are being urged to obtain an individual management plan for their child, which will mean they will be four times less likely to be admitted to hospital due to an attack.
Developed in partnership with Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven Clinical Commissioning Group, the initiative is being led by GP surgeries and hospitals.
The plans provide important information about a child’s inhalers and other medication, and how and when they should be used.
They also give advice on what to do in response to symptoms.
Each child can have numerous copies, so all adults who supervise them are aware of their condition.
The initiative has come in response to high levels of hospital admissions for asthma in the district.
Parents are encouraged to make an appointment with their GP or practice nurse to obtain a plan before their child returns to school.
