Abstract

Slough, in Berkshire, has one of the highest hospital admission rates of under-19-year-olds for asthma in England. Since 2015, it has offered a children's asthma service that provides clinics, teaching sessions and home visits. From 2016, the service organised, with school nurses, the first ‘asthma bus’ tour, visiting secondary schools to engage with pupils and improve their awareness of asthma triggers, understanding of medication and devices, and management of exacerbations.This article has been double-blind peer reviewedIn this article…Burden of childhood asthma in the borough of Slough and the UKChildren's knowledge gaps regarding asthma and its treatmentBenefits of empowering children to take control of their asthma
