Rescue Pack

Rescue medication packs for respiratory conditions are not available on request. These packs are appropriate for patients diagnosed with COPD as part of a management plan after individual assessment. Patients who have had rescue packs previously can access them at  clinic reviews or discussion with a doctor or nurse.

Patients who are concerned about their asthma or COPD should seek advice from a clinician during surgery hours or 111 out-with normal surgery hours.
