Children and Young People’s Asthma

The Healthy London Partnership is a collaboration of the 32 Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in London and NHS England (London Region) which is aiming to transform the capital to become the world’s healthiest global city.

One of its 13 transformation programmes centres around Children and Young People and it has asthma as one of its key priority areas of work - asthma is estimated to affect over 240,000 children in London (Health Survey for England, 2010).

Adult Asthma

The London Respiratory Network (LRN) ran from September 2013 to October 2016 with the aim of improving the outcomes and experience of all Londoners living with chronic lung disease, (including asthma, COPD and pulmonary fibrosis) and illness as a result of tobacco dependence by supporting colleagues to commission and deliver the highest value respiratory care. The LRN work built on the 3-year work programme of the London Respiratory Team (LRT) (2010-13).
