An asthma review is required every year so that your condition may be assessed and your medications reviewed to ensure you are receiving the best possible treatment.
During this review, we will assess your asthma control and measure your peak flow. It is also useful if you could bring your inhalers in so that we can check your inhaler technique – many people cannot use their inhalers correctly and just need some explanation and demonstration to be able to correct this.
Please watch your repeat medication slip – usually a review is required when you cannot collect further medications without seeing a nurse or a doctor. There may also be a note to that effect on your repeat prescription slip.
When your asthma review is due, please book a 20 minute appointment with the nurse. Once the check is performed and, if there are no concerns, your medication will be updated for a further year.
