Children's Hospital at Home Asthma

Service overview

The Children’s Asthma Service launched in February 2015. The team of 3 Specialist Paediatric Asthma Nurses has been commissioned to deliver a single intensive home visit to provide education and support.

The service is based at Lennard Road Health Centre and the team deliver visits within the community at a child/young person’s home address or school setting.

The vision of the team is to optimise management of asthma/wheeze, reduce hospital presentations and to share best practice in asthma care. They support children/young people and their families to self-manage their condition with confidence and to be able to recognise a change or worsening in their condition and to seek advice appropriately.

Who can be referred

We offer visits to children and young people aged from 2-18 years registered with a Croydon GP with asthma/wheeze.
