Medway Asthma Self-Help (MASH)
Who we are
Thank you for supporting
Medway Asthma Self-Help
Medway Asthma Self-Help (MASH) has been helping the people of Medway in Kent (UK) since 1996 with information, advice and support for people affected by asthma. Our doors are open to everyone and all of our services are free.
MASH works with GPs, hospitals and other health professionals to raise awareness and knowledge of asthma for the people of Medway.
MASH offers 30 minute one-to-one advice sessions with an asthma nurse. Our asthma nurse can diagnose asthma, provide personalised asthma action plans, annual reviews, check inhaler technique, and airborne allergy testing.
Our community outreach programme raises awareness of asthma and asthma-related issues, advises how people can effectively self-manage their asthma, and promotes local organisations and activites related to asthma management.
Through all our services and activities, MASH aims to reduce asthma-related emergency admissions and deaths in the Medway area.
