Take our Risk Test


Every 10 seconds someone in the UK has a potentially life-threatening asthma attack. Are you at risk? Our simple test will help you find out.

Research shows certain factors increase your risk of having an asthma attack. If your risk is raised, you’re more likely to have an asthma attack if you come into contact with one of your triggers, whether that’s cold air, dust or pollen. You can’t always avoid triggers, but you can reduce your chances of having an asthma attack, even if you come into contact with a trigger.

How can taking the Risk Test help me?

This test is designed to help you get a clear picture of whether you need to be taking better care of your asthma right now. It takes about a minute to complete, and will ask you questions based on the underlying factors that have been shown to raise your risk. It will use your answers to identify whether you’re at highly increased risk, increased risk or no increased risk of an asthma attack.

What extra support can I get?

At the end of the test, we’ll tell you what you need to do to avoid having an asthma attack if you’re at risk. You’ll also get an option to receive emails tailored to you, with personalised advice to help you manage your asthma.
