5.1 million people in the UK have asthma and 2.6 million are severe asthmatics. However, very few have a personal action plan to control their condition which is leading to increased number of deaths. Asthma kills 1,400 people each year and costs the health system 850 million pounds each year. The economy also loses over 18 million work days due to asthma.
