Asthma Management

Man with blue inhaler
  • Asthma patients on regular medication should attend for a review at least annually or more frequently if their condition dictates.
  • Regular clinic attendance allows monitoring and support so that the risk of emergency admission to hospital is minimised.
  • When asthma symptoms are well controlled there is aminimum impact of the condition on everyday life,
  • We strongly recommend annual flu jabs and immunisation against pneumococcus (a type of pneumonia).


Spirometry is a simple test used to help diagnose and monitor certain lung conditions by measuring how much air you can breath out in one forced breath. It's carried out using a device called a spirometer, which is a small machine attached by cable to a mouthpiece.

Spirometry may be carried out by a doctor or nurse at the surgery or during a visit to the hospital


What is Asthma

We  provide an easy to understand explanations of asthma and reach  a proper diagnosis through special practice tests. Information on asthma is readily available for patients - and this can easily be accessed on-line.


Once asthma is diagnosed, we look to eradicate the symptoms. Through a treatment plan, our objective is to maintain the best possible long-term airway function and reduce the risk of severe attacks.
