Supporting children with Asthma

Our Children's Hospital at Home Asthma team

The Children’s Asthma Service launched in February 2015. The team of three 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.

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

We accept referrals directly from parents, and professionals working with a child including GPs, Practice Nurses, Social Workers and Educational establishments.
Please contact the team if you wish to discuss a referral for your child or a child/ young person you work with.
