I have been a sufferer for over 20 years. My trigger is, like many others, dust and pollen. I have recently (for the 2nd time) tried to get a repeat prescription for my ventolin evohaler only to be denied it as I was told I needed a review with the nurse. Not a problem? When they only work 2 days a week and you can't get an early morning appointment. With my job I travel alot. The best appointment time I was offered was 11am - this would mean a full day off work due to the 2 hour commute from home to office. My question is, when these damn inhalers go they go quick are they allowed to decline me a repeat prescription? I now have to suffer 3 days of hell until my appointment. I'm tired, my chest hurts and I'm struggling!
