If you suffer from asthma, as part of your ongoing care we will contact you each year to invite you in for a review.
If your asthma is stable and you are considered a low risk patient, this year we would like to offer you the opportunity of a Telephone Asthma Review. The latest evidence shows these are just as effective for patients with mild or well-controlled asthma who find it difficult to attend in person.
We will ask you to complete a questionnaire which will help your GP to assess how to appropriately care for you. if you feel your symptoms are changing you can complete this questionnaire at any time and return it to the surgery either by hand, post or by email
