Severe asthma clinic in Newcastle

Hi everyone,

went to see my con at the hospital earlier and he's basically given up on me after 2 years, saying I have severe brittle asthma. He's referring me to a specialised asthma clinic in Newcastle to see if they can come up with anything other than permanent oral steroids, we both agreed I'm too young to be on those long term.

Forgot to ask him what the clinic was called. Does anyone know that clinic in Newcastle?

  • Don't know Newcastle myself. Think you've answered your own question though. They're usually called something like severe or difficult asthma clinic. Newcastle say complex see here newcastle-hospitals.org.uk/...

  • hi lydia, i have not heard of any clinics but it is very good to get under a specialist and if possible to get a community matron. They are fantastic and help you monitor your condition.
