Do asthma patients receive effective care?

Dr Andy Whittamore, Asthma UK's clinical lead, told C+D that community pharmacists can play a "key role" in helping people with asthma.  

"Inhaler technique can easily be assessed in a community pharmacy setting, and can lead to a reduction in symptoms," he said.
