Asthma UK provides independent confidential telephone advice and support to people with asthma and their families, friends and carers through our team of asthma nurse specialists. We also offer telephone advice and support to healthcare professionals.
During office hours
Our telephone Helpline service is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. The number to call is
0800 121 62 44.
When calling to speak to an asthma nurse, select option 1 in the menu.
Calls are free from a BT landline. Charges may vary from other landline providers and mobile phones.
You can call us with any concerns you may have about asthma. We welcome any enquiry, no matter how big or small. We receive queries about what asthma is and what causes it, triggers, symptoms, treatments and inhaler devices. We're also often asked about allergies, exercise, diet, housing location and many other concerns that people have about asthma.
We can listen to your concerns, answer your questions and offer a sympathetic ear.
An interpreting service is available to answer enquiries (from UK residents) in more than 100 languages. Callers are asked which language they need, and after a short wait are connected with the Language Line Service so that they can continue their conversation with an asthma nurse specialist through an interpreter.
We are able to receive Typetalk calls.
For information materials about asthma or to place an order please contact our Supporter Care Team on 0800 121 62 44.
If your asthma is out of control and you need urgent advice you can call NHS 111 or your GP surgery. If you are having an asthma attack do not delay - call 999. See our information on what do in an asthma attack.
