Lead GP: Dr Scott, Lead Asthma Nurse : Jillian Edmonds
Hollinwood Medical Practice has a full programme for asthma care and encourages and helps patients to develop a Personalised Asthma Action Plan (PAAP).
If you have been diagnosed with asthma you will be invited to an annual Asthma Review with our nurse. You should receive your invitation in the same month of your Birthday. This will help you receive an up-to-date assessment for medication, inhaler technique and latest advice and updates. Please bring your medication with you to your appointment.
If you have not been invited to an Asthma review in the past 12 months or have recently joined the practice please speak to a member of the reception team to book an appointment or for further advice on asthma care.
