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).


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, go to https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 before doing anything else.


Please read this helpful information from the British Lung Foundation

You will note that there is no recommendation to have a rescue pack as there is no evidence for their use and indeed their are concerns steroid will reduce your immunity to fight off this virus.

When We Are Closed

Accident & Emergency (A&E)

A&E departments assess and treat patients with serious injuries or illnesses. Generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 for emergencies, such as:

  • loss of consciousness, 
  • pain that is not relieved by simple analgesia,
  • acute confused state,
  • severe chest pain, or
  • breathing difficulties.

If you are unsure then please feel free to ring the practice for advice or 111.

Call 999 in an emergency where life may be threatened.    Chest pains and / or shortness of breath, symptoms of a possible stroke or severe bleeding constitute an emergency.
