Raising awareness of the importance of good respiratory health. Providing education and support to schools and preschools to ensure children with asthma can be managed at school

Following education from our nurses our clients have a better understanding of their respiratory condition and have less visits to doctors, after hours and emergency departments and have more confidence in managing their condition.
