Our Clinics and Services
The first part of the annual review process will ask you to answer some questions to provide some information in relation to your asthma symptoms. Invites will be sent either via SMS, Email or Post and will include an asthma questionnaire.
The information you provide relating to your asthma symptoms will then be reviewed alongside your medical record by a clinician. Based on this review there may be follow up with you via a telephone or video consultation with an asthma nurse, and we will contact you to arrange this.
