The AHSN Network supported the spread of FeNO testing across primary care in England from April 2021 to March 2023, led by Wessex AHSN as the lead AHSN. This programme was delivered as part of the NHS England Accelerated Access Collaborative Rapid Uptake Programme. The resources created as part of that programme have been shared with the PCRS to host as a legacy of the programme. We’d like to express our thanks to Wessex AHSN for sharing these resources with us, which are accessible below.
