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). We are not currently changing our usual advice about emergency supplies of antibiotics and steroids. The main reason for this is that we understand neither would help in the early stages of a COVID-19 infection and people might delay seeking advice if they became increasingly short of breath.
Please do not contact your GP practice for a rescue pack. You should continue to manage your condition in the usual way and if you feel you have symptoms of COVID-19, please phone 119 or click HERE to book a test website before doing anything else.
We are getting increased demand for inhalers from people who have not had inhalers for several years. This is not recommended and inhalers should only be restarted if your symptoms have returned. Please only request inhalers if you are currently using them and please click HERE to visit the asthma UK website or HERE to visit the British Lung Foundation website for more information. We would also like to reassure you that the large majority of people, even with underlying risk factors will have a mild to moderate illness and recover well.

Comments from NHS Friends and Family Test
Run well, Excellent repeat prescriptions service. Pleasant Doctors who care.
Always lovely helpful reception staff. Always get a same day appointment if unwell. I understand the pressures on GP practices and the NHS and appreciate that we still have a surgery. Thank you, you are all appreciated.
Excellent GP practice from kind and helpful reception staff, skilled phlebotomist, empathetic practice nurse and GPs that really listen. My wife and I feel very lucky to live near to such a wonderful practice.
