Around 1 in 5 households in the UK have someone living with Asthma. This is approximately 5.4 million people. Of which 1.1 million are children and 4.3 million are adults. Around 1,000 people die each year, in the UK, from Asthma.  When you consider that 75% of hospital admissions and 90% of deaths caused by Asthma are preventable, it shows there is a huge need for training.
