1 million Brits at risk after missing vital inhaler check

1 million Brits at risk after missing vital inhaler check More than a million people with asthma in the UK could be at risk of a potentially life-threatening asthma attack because they did not get their inhaler technique checked by their GP or asthma nurse, according to new estimates by Asthma UK.

Nearly 1 in 5 (19%) people aren’t getting their inhaler technique checked, according to Asthma UK’s report, which included a survey of more than 10,000 people with asthma. This is an essential part of basic asthma care that everyone with asthma should be getting.
