We conduct regular asthma reviews for those suffering with asthma. It is a chance for you to talk to your nurse or GP about how you can manage your asthma symptoms better, check inhaler technique, talk about your risk of an asthma attack and update your written asthma action plan.
These are usually conducted by the practice nurse, at least once a year, and you should receive an invitation from the practice.
If your symptoms are deteriorating or you have any concerns, please make an appointment for the nurse or a doctor; if this is the case, please do not wait for your routine asthma review.
Frequent use of short-acting bronchodilators indicates poor control and increased risk of death due to asthma.
For patients who are due an annual asthma review, please fill in the asthma annual review form before your appointment.
