Some inaccurate information has been circulating in the public domain regarding special ‘rescue packs’ for patients with pre-existing respiratory conditions such as Asthma or COPD.

Patients will already have a COPD/Asthma rescue pack if they are in the cohort of patients that this is intended for. Patients are being advised to not contact their GP practice for a rescue pack if they have not had one before.

You are advised to manage your condition in the usual way and if you think you have COVID-19 symptoms, please contact 111 online.
