Asthma is a very common chronic condition affecting three million people in the UK today. The severity of asthma varies considerably, both in children and adults. Many have mild asthma with only occasional problems, whilst others sometimes require hospital admission to control severe attacks.
However, the majority of people can reasonably expect to lead normal and active lives. Asthma cannot be cured, but with the correct treatment from us and good self management many asthma sufferers can realistically expect to be free of symptoms and able to enjoy and participate in activities like everyone else.
