Welcome to Asthma Waikato

Does your child struggle with asthma?

  • Are you tired of bouncing back to the doctors and the hospital and never quite getting on top of it?
  • Are you confused about the medicines and need it explained in simple language?
  • Perhaps your child only gets periodic symptoms and you're not sure how to manage it?
  • Would you know what to do - and would your family know what to do - if your child suddenly had an asthma attack?

Asthma Waikato offers asthma education for children aged 0-15 years. For a personal consult, we require a referral. We accept self-referrals as well as those from a GP.

We can help! Fill in our referral form for a free asthma consult with our nurse.


Are you an adult struggling with asthma?

Unfortunately, due to funding restrictions we are currently unable to offer asthma education for adults. If you are an adult requiring help with your asthma please talk to your doctor or practice nurse in the first instance and they should be able to provide the help you need, or they may be able to refer you to the respiratory clinics at Waikato Hospital. For information about our COPD/chronic respiratory illness support and exercise group click above.
