Chest Problems – Asthma COPD
Managing your asthma or COPD should be an ongoing partnership and communication between yourself and your doctor or nurse. Our aim is to empower you the patient to understand and manage your condition. Emphasis is on the need for ongoing education. Not just crisis intervention, so arrange an appointment with the Practice nurse for a review of your medication and inhalers and we will help you understand more about your condition and treatment, how to monitor your symptoms and to hopefully lead as normal life as possible.
