REAL-HEALTH Respiratory

The REAL-HEALTH Respiratory initiative helps GP practices improve their management of common respiratory conditions, with an initial focus on asthma. 

Identifying high-risk asthma patients

Using guidelines, educational materials, and an in-practice software tool, the programme aims to reduce asthma-related hospital admissions by improving management of the condition in primary care. The programme:

  • Provides practices with tools that help them identify patients with high-risk asthma, based on prescribing records;
  • Optimises asthma management and prescribing, with regular structured asthma reviews for those at highest risk of hospital admission.
