Over the past 12 months, Asthma Australia has sought feedback from people with asthma, their carers and treating healthcare professionals who have used our telephone information services. As the peak body for people with asthma, we have strived to listen to what you need, want and value regarding your asthma support.
What we have heard this year is that you want Asthma Australia to deliver a more personalised and flexible service that is easy to connect with and clearly communicates. So after helping many thousands of Australians via our 1800 ASTHMA phone service and The COACH Program, we’re pleased to share that we are shaking things up.
From 1 December 2021 we will no longer be offering The COACH Program®, however we will continue to support people with asthma through our 1800 ASTHMA telephone information line and digital communications with our consumer support team. Our Asthma Educators and support team are available on 1800 ASTHMA (1800 278 462) to answer your asthma questions, provide support and to help the millions of people with asthma to live freely.
