'Complacency' over asthma care revealed

27th June 2011

The charity Asthma UK has said that its research into the care of young people with asthma has exposed "shocking" complacency by some Scottish health boards.

A survey by Healthcare Improvement Scotland suggested some boards had no register of local children and young people with the condition and failed to record the number of children admitted to hospital with asthma symptoms. However, the survey suggested care had improved in the past three years but the charity was concerned that the asthma of many young people was still being badly managed.
