This quality standard covers diagnosing and managing asthma in adults, young people and children. It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement.

In November 2017, statement 1 was amended to reflect the NICE guideline on asthma: diagnosis, monitoring and chronic asthma management.

We checked this quality standard in 2017 and we are updating it. See the development page for progress on the update.
