Asthma is an ongoing disease of the airways (lungs) characterised by cough, wheeze, shortage of breath or chest tightness.

Our Asthma specialist Practice Nurses offer an asthma review annually. Asthma reviews usually take around 20 minutes, so please remember to tell the receptionist when you call for your appointment it is for your asthma check.

This appointment allows assessment and discussion of your  asthma symptoms and management plan. At this appointment the Practice Nurse will check your symptoms, peak flow reading, inhaled medicines and your inhaler technique -so please bring along all the inhalers and spacers you currently use to your appointment. You may also wish to discuss any asthma-related concerns at this appointment. The Practice nurse also encourages patients with asthma to arrange an appointments if they have any increase in asthma symptoms and also if they have had to attend hospital with their asthma.
