The nursing team run our asthma, COPD and stop smoking clinics. We offer annual clinics.
You may be asked to book for lung function testing prior to your review. The nursing team will guide you on this. It is helpful if you can bring your inhalers and spacers along.
You are entitled to an annual review but we will not remind everyone. We encourage all our patients to take control of their lung health by attending annually. Your health is your responsibility. Please do not wait to be invited.
When it comes to using your inhalers, reading an instruction sheet just doesn't cut it. They can be complicated. You want to be shown.
There are so many different devices available now it can be hard to get the hang of the new device that your Asthma / COPD nurse has prescribed. We do try to show you in clinic. But should you forget - or just want a quick recap - we have accessed a collection of videos for you to use. They cover all the different inhaler types.
