Who is it suitable for?

Anyone with asthma, particularly aimed at children (likely those over the age of 13) and young people. 

How does it work?

Digital Health Passport uses a digital version of the Personalised Asthma Action Plan developed by the charity Asthma UK. People with asthma action plans are 4 times less likely to be admitted to hospital because of their asthma. 

You can use the app to record your symptoms and share them with healthcare professionals. It also provides useful information, like how to use your inhaler properly and what to do in an emergency.

How do I access it?
