Emergency asthma inhalers for use in schools

Guidance for schools in England on using emergency inhalers.



From 1 October 2014 UK schools will be allowed to purchase a salbutamol inhaler without a prescription for use in emergencies when a child with asthma cannot access their own inhaler.

This guidance will give schools that choose to keep an emergency inhaler the basis to create a policy or protocol for using it.
