Media centre

Welcome to the media centre. This is where you can find our latest news and learn more about asthma and Asthma UK's spokespeople.

There’s rarely a day when you won’t read something about asthma in the newspaper or see it on the TV or on the radio. Despite this many people still don’t realise how serious the condition is. We work with journalists across the UK to highlight the impact that asthma has on people’s lives and to raise awareness of the work of our staff, researchers and supporters.
