Asthma and Coronavirus

We have recently been getting a lot of concerned asthmatic patients and parents ringing the surgery to request “emergency packs” of medications in the event of developing coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms.

Please be aware that this is not currently the advice on how asthma is being managed. For in-depth and up-to-date advice on what to do as an asthmatic patient, please visit www.asthma.org.uk and click on the web link on the main page regarding coronavirus.

This web page can also be found at: https://www.asthma.org.uk/advice/triggers/coronavirus-covid-19/

If you have developed a new fever and a continuous cough, the advice at this stage remains the same: kindly use the NHS 111 online service for further information.
