BTS/SIGN Guideline on the Management of Asthma

BTS met NICE in January 2017 for a useful exchange of views  about the publication of the NICE Asthma Diagnosis and Management Guidelines due later this year.    BTS and SIGN will issue a further statement when the NICE guidance has been published, setting out the way forward which we hope will be of benefit to people with asthma, their carers and healthcare professionals.
