Asthma UK

We are a small friendly team of asthma nurse specialists who provide independent confidential advice and support to people with asthma and their families, friends and carers. We also offer advice and support to healthcare professionals.

Our service is almost totally funded by charitable donations. We offer a range of services depending on when you need our advice.

Our telephone Adviceline service is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. The number to call is 0800 121 62 44. Calls are free from a BT landline. Charges may vary from other landline providers and mobile phones.

You can call us with any concerns you may have about asthma. We welcome any enquiry, no matter how big or small. We receive queries about what asthma is and what causes it, triggers, symptoms, treatments and inhaler devices. We're also often asked about allergies, exercise, diet, housing location and many other concerns that people have about asthma.

We can listen to your concerns, answer your questions and offer a sympathetic ear.

An interpreting service is available to answer enquiries (from UK residents) in more than 100 languages. Callers are asked which language they need, and after a short wait are connected with the Language Line Service so that they can continue their conversation with an asthma nurse specialist through an interpreter. We are able to receive Typetalk calls.
