Not a substitute for a doctor

Asthma advice complements your doctor’s advice, but is not intended as a substitute.

How asthma counselling works

Besides medical treatment, we offer you support in cooperation with certified AsthmaCheck pharmacies. You choose a certified pharmacy as your point of contact where specialists will provide answers to your questions on asthma, offer control tests and conduct lung function tests.

Holiday camps

Holiday camps are aimed at children (aged 8 to 12) and young people (aged 13 to 16) with asthma. During the week-long camp, the youngsters – under professional care – learn important facts about asthma and the right way to handle it while also having fun.

The camps are currently only available in German or French.


The place to go for advice on asthma is a certified pharmacy in your local area.

The counselling is aimed at asthma patients. The following will be offered at the counselling session:

  • Lung function test: see how well your lungs are doing.
  • Asthma action plan: check whether your medication dosage is still correct.
  • Improve your inhalation technique: the contact person in the pharmacy will explain to you how best to inhale.
  • Get answers to your questions: your local asthma pharmacy is happy to answer your questions.

To make an appointment, simply contact a certified pharmacy in your local area.

  • Children’s camp: The camp is aimed at children aged 8 to 12 years with asthma. Please register online.
  • Youth camp: The camp is aimed at youngsters aged 13 to 16 years with asthma. Registrations can be made online.

CSS pays a share of the costs through the Health Account. You pay for the consultation directly at the time, then submit the bill to us by post or via myCSS for reimbursement.
