Leading on from the mess I made assuming recently that if you stuck up for yourself and shouted loudly enough you got the help you needed. I was wondering what AUK should or maybe are doing about equalising care. It seems that asthma is a hiden postcode lottery. We hear a huge amount about other illnesses being a lottery yet I was completly ignorant about how hard it is for some and I thought being a suffer myself I knew the system. What is going wrong, how can we make sure that everyone gets the help they deserve as soon as possible? Is it down to funding, is it a problem of local cons thinking they can cope, of ignornace about how bad asthma can be and about how life challenging it is?
I am not expecting anyone to have answsers but it would be interesting to hear how others have coped, what they did to get treatment or what they tried that simply got them no-where, maybe this could be used a basis to lobby for ending of the asthma postcode lottery.
