Inaccurate information circulating regarding special ‘rescue packs’ for patients with pre-existing respiratory conditions⚠️

We have been made aware of some inaccurate information circulating regarding special ‘rescue packs’ for patients with pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)⚠️

Patients will already have a COPD / asthma rescue pack if you are in the cohort of patients that this is intended for, and will be part of your annual review & included within your care plan.

Please do not contact your GP practice for a rescue pack if you have not had one before. You should continue to manage your condition in the usual way and if you feel you have symptoms of COVID-19, go to https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 before doing anything else.
