Leicester NHS Trust Project Summary

Executive Summary of Partnership Working between University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust and Teva UK Limited

The project aims to ultimately improve patient management of their asthma through the use of an asthma app which is distributed to the patient by a healthcare professional.

Project Period: both parties have committed resources to this project and the project will run for a period of 12 months.

Project is designed to:

  • Design, develop and implement an asthma app for patients from practices in the Leicestershire locality and patients from the severe asthma clinic at Glenfield hospital, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust
