Poorly controlled asthma emits same quantity of greenhouse gas as 124,000 homes each year in the UK

Patients whose asthma is poorly controlled have eight times excess greenhouse gas emissions compared with those whose condition is well controlled – equivalent to that produced by 124,000 homes each year in the UK – according to the first study of its kind.

The article – published online today (28 February) in the journal Thorax – is written by Alexander J K Wilkinson, from the department of respiratory medicine at East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust, and an international team of researchers. Dr Wilkinson has been the British Thoracic Society’s lead on sustainable respiratory care in the UK.

Improving the care of asthma patients could achieve substantial carbon emissions savings, and help the NHS meet its net zero target, say Dr Wilkinson and his colleagues.

To gauge the environmental footprint of asthma care in the UK, the researchers retrospectively analysed the anonymised health records of 236,506 people with asthma whose data had been submitted to the Clinical Practice Research Datalink between 2008 and 2019.
