ASTHMA: Sign up for direct support

I am writing to let you know that people in your area with asthma are being invited to take part in a pilot scheme for a new digital health project aimed at reducing their risk of having an asthma attack.

Asthma UKs 12-Week Asthma Support Programme, funded by a Department of Health Innovation Challenge Fund grant, provides expert advice, activities and tips sent straight to your smartphone.

The pilot is open to people who have had an asthma attack in the last year, are aged between 18 and 67, live in England and have a smartphone.

Once signed up to the pilot, those involved will receive personalised digital support that will be available to them via their smartphones.

Anyone who is interested in taking part in the 12-Week pilot can find out more and sign up at www.asthma.org.uk/asthma-support-programme
