Home Visits

A request for a home visit should be made before 10.00am. Home visits are made on the basis of clinical need, for patients who are too frail to come to the surgery.

 

Services for asthma are nurse led within the surgery with 1-2 clinics on a week by either Hannah or Hilary

Currently appointments are generally via telephone but a face to face nurse appointment can be requested if preferred.

All patients with a diagnosis of asthma should be reviewed yearly

If you are experiencing any changes in your breathing and already have a diagnosis of asthma, or you feel your inhalers are not as effective please call the surgery

To book an appointment in the asthma clinic please call the surgery

Using your inhaler correctly is critical to managing your asthma well

Some people may be on what is called a MART or SMART regime. This is where they only have one inhaler (either Fostair or Symbicort) and that inhaler is used to both relieve and prevent. The advantage of this is that when symptoms flare up the airways are getting treated with both a steroid to reduce inflammation and a bronchodilator  to open up the airways.

An example of this can be found by clicking on this link https://chiesiair.co.uk/hcp/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2019/06/Fostair-NEXThaler-in-MART-user-guide_UK-NEX-1800024_V8F.pdf

Below are links to some videos to demonstrate how to do so
