These are carried out by the Practice Nurse.
If you have asthma or other breathing difficulties, such as COPD (chronic bronchitis or emphysema) the Practice Nurse will be able to arrange lung assessment tests for you, and give you advice about your medication and inhalers.
When booking you appointment, please let the reception staff know that you are booking for an asthma check so that they can arrange the correct length of appointment.
If you are on medication or using inhalers for asthma or bronchitis you should attend for regular check ups and the doctor or the nurse will advise you when to book your next appointment.
