4 There is a rise in children with asthma being poorly in September when children return to school. There is also a drop in prescriptions being collected in August. We would like to see if we can reduce the numbers of children having asthma attacks by reminding them to pick up their medication and use it as prescribed by their GP at least 2 weeks before going back to school The Design; Randomised control trial 140 general practices Approximately 14,000 children with asthma We will send the intervention from half of the practices, to children with asthma, to see if it has any effect. We will collect information on any NHS contacts for a year after the intervention has been sent The trial will finish at the end of January 2015 PLEASANT PPI Sept 2012
