We have recently published two new posters in our QR code series on medicines commonly prescribed to children or young people who have asthma or allergies. These posters are designed to help share our information with parents and carers and can be displayed in asthma clinics, GP surgeries or hospital settings.

The two new posters are available to view here:

How to use these posters

  • We envisage health professionals downloading, printing and displaying these posters where parents and carers will see them, or using them during consultations to share information.
  • Parents and carers can scan the QR code for the medicine which their child has been prescribed.
  • Parents and carers may use the QR codes to share information with school and other people who care for their child.
  • The “General advice about children’s medicines” QR code poster can be put up in youth centres, nurseries, schools and health centres.
