Unnecessary Hospital Admissions For Asthma

EDM number 1485 in 2007-08, proposed by Howard Stoate on 06/05/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases and Health services.

That this House is concerned that children in some primary care trusts are eight times more likely than children in other primary care trusts to have a hospital admission for their asthma; notes that respiratory conditions are the second most common cause of hospital admissions in the UK and that 75 per cent. of emergency asthma admissions are thought to be avoidable; supports Asthma UK's Wish You Were Here? campaign launched on World Asthma Day 2008 which draws attention to shocking disparities in hospital admission rates for asthma across the country; and calls on the Government to prioritise the effective diagnosis, treatment and management of asthma, to develop and implement clear and consistent national quality standards for asthma services, to encourage primary care trusts to adopt Asthma UK's Good Asthma Services Checklist and to work with primary care trusts and other healthcare providers, employers, people with asthma, carers and patient organisations to identify and reduce risk factors for asthma and asthma attacks.

This motion has been signed by a total of 54 MPs.
