Understanding childhood asthma in London
Healthy London Partnership in conjunction with Harrow CCG undertook an audit of management of asthma care across London. This audit is intended to highlight potential preventable problems related to the management of attacks and also to stimulate change by health professionals in the treatment of attacks; in particular by assessing all patients within a few days of treatment for an attack and optimising treatment and reducing future risk. This report has demonstrated that the implementation of a clinical asthma audit has helped decrease CYP hospital admissions by 16%, with obvious advantages for patients, their families and the local health economy.
