Asthma

Asthma is a condition affecting the airways – the small tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs.

An asthma review at least once a year is recommended by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) as one of the asthma care quality standards. A review is a great way to check in with your asthma, consider any triggers or symptoms and update your asthma action plan.

How to benefit from a regular asthma review:

A small amount of time reviewing your asthma care could save you more time in the long run, by preventing asthma symptoms and avoiding a potentially life-threatening asthma attack. Perhaps you don’t think you need an asthma review, or it’s hard to find time to come along to the surgery.

We have put together a simple questionnaire that will take less than 5 minutes to complete, about how your asthma is affecting you.

Your answers will help us to help you ensure that your asthma is as well controlled as possible.

 Asthma symptoms can occur regularly or on contact with specific trigger factors.

Signs of worsening Asthma

  • Needing to use your reliever (usually blue) more often than usual
  • A falling peak flow or increased differences between the morning and evening readings.

If you experience any of these symptoms you should make an appointment at the surgery for an asthma check.
