Asthma is the most common long-term medical condition in children and young people and sadly, every year, children continue to avoidably die from asthma. The NHS has training available for all who care for children and young people with asthma to help improve their understanding and awareness of the issue.


The e-learning for health website has free online training for all levels of professionals who work with children and young people (CYP) with asthma. On pages 11 and 12 of this document, there is an outline of which professions should complete up to which tier. Anyone is able to complete tier 1 of the training.

If you have any questions about CYP Asthma, email the NHS Kent and Medway programme manager: leslie.smith7@nhs.net
