What do we do?
Children with asthma require specialist care regarding their
asthma and if they are on medication this also requires regular monitoring. The
overall care of children with asthma in Rotherham is managed by consultant
paediatricians (children’s doctors). This is usually via clinic appointments.
In between these appointments, the asthma nurse can provide
support on a day to day basis to aid families with certain issues such as
making the most of school, staying safe and enjoying leisure activities. The
asthma nurse has clinics to monitor your child who has recently been diagnosed
with asthma to offer support and regulating medication. This can help to prevent hospital attendances.
This is often via the telephone support service. If you are wondering whether
the asthma nurse can help then please call.
