Long Term Conditions
Your asthma action plan tells you everything you need to know about looking after your asthma in one place.
Your personalised asthma action plan has all the information and tips you need to stay well. Based on your asthma history, it tells you:
- which medicines to take each day
- how to spot if your asthma’s getting worse – and what to do
- what an asthma attack is and what to do if you have one.
Everyone with asthma should have an action plan. People who have one are better equipped to manage their symptoms and so less likely to be admitted to hospital for their asthma. And with fewer asthma symptoms you’ll be less likely to need time off work or school.
