Asthma

52702092 s bubutuAsthma is a very common chronic condition affecting the lungs of millions of people in the UK today.

  It can start at any age and the severity of asthma varies considerably,  both in children and adults. Asthma cannot be cured. Many people have mild asthma which does not require regular medication, but those with daily symptoms require regular treatment.  However, if the medication is used correctly most people with asthma can reasonably expect to be free from symptoms and lead a normal and active life.

Taking control of your asthma allows you the freedom to live your life as you choose, not as your asthma dictates.  Our Practice Asthma Nurse is Sr French.
