#AskAboutAsthma 2023

11-17 September

NHS England – London’s #AskAboutAsthma campaign returns in September for its seventh year to raise awareness around childhood asthma and how to manage it.

#AskAboutAsthma highlights the simple changes to children and young people’s care that will make a big difference to how they experience their asthma. Led by NHS England – London’s Babies, Children and Young People programme, the aim is for every person involved in the care of a child or young person with asthma – from GPs and nurses to parents/carers, teachers and youth group leaders – to know about the four asks that can help every person to manage their condition and live full, active lives.

The 2023 campaign theme is “Widening our view”: we’re shining a light on the wider factors of children and young people’s asthma care including issues such as housing, mould and vaping. By widening our view, we can help to raise the profile of asthma by reaching out to everyone who has asthma, their friends, families and the whole system that cares for them.
