Every 10 seconds someone in the UK is having an asthma attack and every 20 minutes a child is admitted to hospital with life-threatening asthma attack. Whether someone having an asthma attack lives or dies depends on the person standing next to them at the time and their ability to administer life-saving treatment.

That is why The Asthma and Allergy Foundation have set a target of training 20,000 people – teachers (pupils/classmates), work colleagues, healthcare professionals and parents/carers by the end of 2023. The charity would also continue to provide asthma management workshops so those living with the condition can learn to self-manage their symptoms and improve quality of life.

The new campaign features a girl in the poster asking ‘could you save my life?’ which will be displayed throughout Scotland.
