If you get wheezy with exertion or have a persistent cough, you may have Asthma, which is when your lungs are over-sensitive. Regular reviews (to ‘fine tune’ your medication) will help you feel much better, sleep better and take less time off work.
The Asthma Control Test will provide you with a snapshot of how well your asthma has been controlled over the last four weeks, giving you a simple score out of 25
Work out your score and send us the result on our email address or on an eConsult
If your score is less than 15, please arrange to talk to one of our nurses
Technique makes a difference - video animations show how to use your inhaler and spacers.
If you use an action plan, you are four times less likley to have an asthma attack that requires emergency hospital treatment!
