Currently, there is one standard within the Children and Young People domain and it focuses on childhood asthma. The aim is to reduce the variation between practices so, no matter which GP practice you take your child to in Salford, you know their GP is doing things in the best way.
Asthma is the most common long-term condition among children and affects the airways in the lungs. Asthma UK estimates that one child is admitted to hospital in the UK every 17 minutes because of their asthma.
