Asthma / COPD Management during COVID-19

We have been made aware of some inaccurate information circulating regarding special 'rescue packs' for patients with pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Please do not contact your GP practice for a rescue pack. You should continue to manage your condition in the usual way and if you feel you have symptoms of COVID-19, go to https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19/ before doing anything else.

Please read this helpful informa...tion from the British Lung Foundation & Asthma UK.

https://www.asthma.org.uk/ad…/triggers/coronavirus-covid-19/

You will note that there is no recommendation to have a rescue pack as there is no evidence for their use and indeed their are concerns steroids will reduce you immunity to fight off the virus.
