Asthma clinic

Asthma is a long-term, often progressive, disease that makes breathing difficult. Allergens, irritants, exercise and respiratory infections may trigger asthma.

Successful asthma treatment has four key elements:

  • measurement of lung function
  • avoidance of triggers
  • proper medication
  • patient education.

We recommend that all those with asthma have a routine check up with our trained asthma nurses at least annually. Our clinics aim to improve a patient’s quality of life through better disease management. They enable us to check symptoms, lung function and inhaler technique to ensure patient’s are not over or under-treated.

Children & young people under the age of 18 must be seen in the inhaler clinic at least once a year.  

If you have been advised by the surgery to submit an annual review of your asthma symptoms, please use this asthma control test form.

Patients with asthma are entitled to a flu jab every year. Please ask at the surgery about booking your appointment in the autumn.

If you would like to find out more about asthma, including how to use your inhaler or spacer, we suggest AsthmaUK or Right Breathe websites.
