At the Respiratory Clinics the specialist Asthma and COPD nurses monitor patients who have COPD, asthma or episodes of recurring wheeze. Our nurses will provide the most appropriate treatment to relieve and prevent symptoms. We recommend that patients with asthma and COPD are seen at least once a year at the clinic, regardless of whether they attend the Chest Clinic at St Richards.
We will send written invitations to patients to attend an annual checkup, if appropriate. If you are unable to attend an appointment, for any reason, we would appreciate you contacting the surgery as early as possible to cancel or re-arrange the appointment, as other patients may benefit from the released appointment.
