The PCRS-UK Conference is supported by the following conference partners:

Every ten seconds someone in the UK has a potentially life-threatening asthma attack and three people die every day. Tragically two thirds of these deaths could be prevented, whilst others still suffer with asthma so severe current treatments don't work.
This has to change. That's why Asthma UK exists. We work to stop asthma attacks and, ultimately, cure asthma by funding world leading research and scientists, campaigning for change and supporting people with asthma to reduce their risk of a potentially life-threatening asthma attack.

Asthma UK can add value to every one of your patient’s care. Our blog explains how.

  • Save consultation time. Sharing our Advice Pages to give you valuable time to provide more tailored advice
  • Get quality-assured action plans. Download our Asthma action plan here. Complete it digitally using EMIS (see our how to guide). These can be saved directly to the patient’s notes and shared by email
  • Get year-round back-up. Encourage your patients to follow us on Facebook or Twitter for regular self-management hints, tips, weather and air quality alerts
Asthma UK is working with NHS England on a 12week programme to improve self-management behaviours by telephone, text and email. See which of your patients may benefit at 12w-ASP
