Asthma is very common now, and our nurses have been trained to run a clinic-type service. Modern asthma care has been shown to be most successful at both reducing symptoms and preventing attacks and exacerbations. Even if you have had asthma for many years, you should attend the nurse’s clinics to make sure you are having the most appropriate regime for you; many people who have suffered for years have had their lives greatly improved by a more modern regime. You can complete the Annual Asthma Review Questionnaire online on this link.
