Why do we need Asthma Rescue Kits in Schools?



Asthma is the most common chronic condition, affecting one in eleven children. On average, there are two children with asthma in every classroom in the UK. There are over 25,000 emergency hospital admissions for asthma amongst children a year in the UK.

Since October 2014 the Human Medicines (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2014 have allowed schools to buy salbutamol inhalers, without a prescription, for use in emergencies.

ARK has been designed so that schools can store and make easily accessible medical devices used in the event of an asthma attack. Keeping an Asthma Rescue Kit for emergency use will have many benefits. It could prevent an unnecessary and traumatic trip to hospital for a child, and potentially save their life. Parents are likely to have greater peace of mind about sending their child to school. More information can be accessed here.

How do schools obtain Asthma Rescue Kits?

Schools can buy inhalers and spacers (these are enclosed plastic vessels which make it easier to deliver asthma medicine to the lungs) from a pharmaceutical supplier, such as Crest Medical, without a prescription, provided the general advice relating to these transactions are observed. 

A supplier will need a request signed by the principal or head teacher (ideally on appropriately headed paper) stating:

1) the name of the school for which the product is required

2) the purpose for which that product is required

3) the total quantity required.

A template letter which can be used for this purpose can be downloaded here. 

  • Schools can buy inhalers in small quantities provided it is done on an occasional basis and the school does not intend to profit from it. Please note that pharmacies are not required to provide inhalers or spacers free of charge to schools: the school must pay for them as a retail item.

  • - a salbutamol metered dose inhaler

  • - two plastic spacers compatible with the inhaler
