A general practitioner's audit of paediatric secondary care of asthma.


Asthma is the most common chronic disease of childhood and one of the most common causes for acute admission to hospital. There appears to be an increase in prevalence over the last decade, and certainly asthma is a feature of day-to-day general practice. For some time we have felt in our practice that the standard of care received by children referred, either acutely or to outpatients, was substandard, with inappropriate interventions or lack of appropriate interventions being performed. In order to examine the validity of these sentiments, an audit of the primary/secondary care interface was performed on children the ages of 1-6 years inclusive, registered with the practice on 1 October 1993.
