The Respiratory Clinics are lead by our Senior Practice Nurse Mrs Theresa Macauley. In these clinics the specialist Asthma and COPD nurses monitor patients who have asthma, COPD or episodes of recurring wheeze. The aim is to 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.
If appropriate, we will send written invitations to patients to attend an annual checkup. If, for any reason, you are unable to attend an appointment we would very much appreciate you contacting the surgery to cancel or re-arrange the appointment. Other patients may benefit from the released appointment.
