Noticeboard

As of Monday 16th March 2020


Due to the current CORONAVIRUS pandemic, for the safety of all our patients and staff and to reduce the risk of onward transmission, we will not be booking any face to face appointments directly without our doctors consulting with you first.


We request that you make contact with the practice via econsult through our website. If this is not possible for you, please call the practice to book a telephone appointment; the doctor will decide upon whether you need to attend the surgery and you will be booked in accordingly.


This will be the situation for the foreseeable future, and only patients with booked appointments should be attending the surgery.

We do understand that not everyone is able to come to the surgery due to other commitments and personal circumstances. Therefore if you are unable to come and see us at the moment, we would like to be aware of your asthma control for us to be able to continue to prescribe you medication. Please complete the questions on the link.

However, please note that if your asthma symptoms are deteriorating or you have any concerns, please make an appointment with the practice nurse for a review.

 

  

Asthma

Asthma is a common condition that causes coughing, wheezing, tightness of the chest and breathlessness. Most people with asthma who take the appropriate treatment can live normal lives, but left untreated, asthma can cause permanent damage to the airways

 

Symptoms of asthma

 

The usual symptoms of asthma are

  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Tightness in the chest

 

Not everyone will get all of these symptoms. Some people experience them from time to time; a few people may experience these symptoms all the time. It is recommended that adults have a review of their asthma medication once a year and children under 12 once every 6 months.

If your review is due you can start it online by clicking here

 

 

As this is a variable condition there may be times when you need to come in more often.

Think about your control, have you:

  • Needed to use your reliever inhaler (usually blue) more than 3 times a week?
  • Woken at night with asthma symptoms such as cough, wheeze or shortness of breath?
  • Had to alter you normal work or leisure activities due to asthma symptoms? If this is happening to you please make an appointment for a review with your asthma nurse or GP.
