Please have your responses to these questions available during your appointment.

Why have an Asthma review?

All patients who have a diagnosis of Asthma are invited to an annual Asthma review with a clinician. Asthma guidelines recommend this as an important way to stay on top of your asthma symptoms.

It is very important that you have regular asthma review, as this can help you keep free of asthma symptoms and cut your risk of an asthma attack.

What to expect during your asthma review

The clinician will discuss your current asthma control and any symptoms which you may be experiencing. They will also review your inhaler technique, peak flow levels and also make sure you are prescribed the most appropriate medication.

The clinician will also provide you with your Asthma Management Plan which details what medicines you take each day to control your asthma, how to spot if your asthma is getting worse, and what to do if you think you are having an asthma attack.

How to prepare for your asthma review

Before your asthma review appointment please:

  • Complete the Asthma Control Test, this is a really useful questionnaire to help measure your asthma control over the last 4 weeks.
  • Keep a note of any asthma symptoms which you may be experiencing
  • If you have a Peak Flow meter please measure your peak flow. You can keep a diary for 7 days before the appointment, which can be discussed at your review. If you do not have a peak flow meter and wish to monitor at home, please contact the surgery and they can provide a prescription for one.
  • Have your inhalers to hand so you can discuss these with the clinician
