National bundle of care for children and young people with asthma published in England

28 Oct 2021

On September 23, 2021, NHS England and Improvement (NHSE/I) published the National bundle of care for children and young people (CYP) with asthma, which is phase one of a plan to support Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) in delivering high-quality asthma care.

The following documents are available:

  • "National bundle of care for children and young people with asthma" provides standards;
  • "National bundle of care for children and young people with asthma: integrated care system deliverables" - specific actions that ICSs should take;
  • "National bundle of care for children and young people with asthma: resource pack" - templates and forms.

The program sets out the blueprint of evidence-based interventions and will focus on improving each of the following components based on the patient pathway:

  • Environmental impacts (parental smoking, air pollution);
  • Accurate and early diagnosis (primary, secondary, and tertiary care);
  • Effective preventative medicine (self-management, primary, emergency (111), secondary care);
  • Managing exacerbations (self-management, apps/peakflow, primary, emergency (111), secondary care, PICU);
  • Severe asthma (service specification, new therapies, R&D).

Each component formed National working groups, chaired by prominent experts in that field, with membership spanning all regions of England, healthcare professionals, young people, carers, and other stakeholders. The program was overseen by an Asthma Oversight Group, with representatives from across health systems, National Bodies, Royal Colleges, and the third sector.

Two additional working groups (asthma competencies, training, and education needs; data and digital) were formed to support the development of the bundle.

A final and complete version of the National bundle of care will be published in Spring 2022.
