star this property answer text <p>It is the intention of the National Health Service, as set out in its Long Term Plan commitment, to reduce the use of traditional inhalers with higher levels of fluorinated gases. There are devices available which use significantly less fluorinated gases and dry powder devices, which do not use fluorinated gases, unlike traditional metered dose devices.</p><p>This year, the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence has published a Patient Decision Aid to help people with asthma, alongside health professionals, to identify which inhalers could meet their needs and control their symptoms. Where several inhalers could be viable options, the decision aid helps clinicians and patients choose the more environmentally friendly option, with a lower carbon footprint. The British Thoracic Society have included device carbon impacts in their recently published asthma guidelines.</p> more like this

These proposals will aim to reach the most deprived 3-5 year olds in all areas of the country and will look to reach 30% by 2022.</p><p>The Green Paper consultation included a question on the role that water companies can play in supporting water fluoridation initiatives. The consultation closed on 14 October and we are currently analysing responses. In addition, we will also be exploring ways of removing the funding barriers to encourage more local areas that are interested in fluoridating water to come forward with proposals.</p> more like this
