#AskAboutAsthma 2023 – widening our view

11 September 2023

#AskAboutAsthma is back for 2023. Now in its seventh year, the campaign encourages simple changes to children and young people’s care that will make a big difference to how they experience their asthma. The 2023 #AskAboutAsthma campaign will run from 11 – 17 September, ahead of the rise in asthma attacks in September when students go back to school after their summer holidays. The campaign is run by the NHS England – London Babies, Children and Young People’s Transformation team and centres around four steps to help manage asthma:

1. get an asthma action plan in place.

2. understand how to use inhalers correctly.

3. schedule an asthma review every year and after every attack.

4. consider air pollution and its impact on lung health – every asthma conversation should include indoor and outdoor air pollution.

This year’s theme is “Widening our view” and is shining a light on the wider factors of children and young people’s asthma care including housing, mould and vaping. “Widening our view” also helps us to raise the profile of asthma; reaching out to everyone who has asthma, their friends, families and the whole system that cares for them.
