Up to 22,000 asthma patients could be at risk from lack of preventative treatment


GP’s crap at XXXX (add your favourite disease du jour). It is seldom as simple as that. Of my asthma and COPD patients there are those that persistently request early (often very early) SABA inhalers despite being told time and time again that they should be using their ICS rather than SABA. It’s like banging your head against a brick wall. “Only me blue inhaler works doc!” Then goes off outside for a quick fag. “Not going to give me a script? OK am off the AEU/OOH to slag you off and get a new inhaler. Oh and complaint in its way“. Ideas Asthma UK?
