Learn About Asthma
Asthma is spreading at an alarming rate. According to the National Asthma Campaign, about 100,000 people are admitted to hospital every year because of the condition.
Get Active for Asthma is a campaign run by the NAC to promote the support services available so they will reach more people with asthma.
The charity's Harrow and district group will be taking part by setting up an information stand in St Ann's Shopping Centre in Harrow town centre on Saturday.
Visitors to the stall will be able to talk to nurses, who will demonstrate the range of inhalers and other devices available for sufferers, and literature and information on all aspects of asthma will be available.
Other displays will be at branches of Boots in Harrow's St George's Centre and in Field End Road, Eastcote, and at Gayton Road Library in Harrow and Ealing Road Library in Wembley.
An information pack, Get Active, is available on request by ringing 0171 226 2260, extension 385. To speak to someone about asthma, call the National Asthma Campaign's helpline on 0345 010203. The line is open from 9am until 7pm on weekdays.
