Through correct diagnosis, we recognise asthma and aim to abolish the symptoms. By careful treatment, the objective is to maintain the best possible long-term airway function and reduce the risk of severe attacks.
In children, we are looking to achieve normal growth. We encourage patients to use self-management plans.
Patients with asthma will be able to recognise their symptoms, know the distinction between preventers and relievers and will understand when to call for help with symptoms that are getting worse.
Importantly, we will demonstrate the correct use of any chosen inhaler device.
Patients on our asthma register will be part of our call and recall system and you will be looked after by our team of practice nurses and doctors.
By carefully managing your condition, we will be able to reduce risks, improve quality of life and minimise any absences form school or work.
Please ask at reception for further details. All doctors are fully qualified to deal with this condition
