No specific assessment has been made. NHS England and NHS Improvement’s Severe Asthma Collaborative are developing the capacity of the severe asthma centres to streamline patient pathways to biologic therapy and reduce variation in prescribing and patient management. A toolkit has been produced to support clinical teams.
