"There are 314,000 people living with asthma in Wales, of which 59,000 are children. Despite these high numbers, access to respiratory care and rehabilitation services is lacking with some services struggling to recover post-Covid."Whilst it is welcome that the Welsh Government have developed a new quality statement, they are yet to publish a comprehensive implementation plan required to help improve outcomes for people living with asthma and other lung conditions in Wales."I echo calls from Asthma & Lung UK who have drawn up a raft of recommendations of how provision of respiratory care can be improved, including the need to urgently address improvements to self-care and increase access to basic care by ensuring patients are prescribed the right inhaler medication and device.
