Having had asthma a since birth I recently discovered Boots repeat prescription service which was great as they text you every time the prescription is ready. This worked brilliantly as it saves me time not having to call into the Doctors as I work 6 days a week and find it difficult to nip in due to parking/traffic etc.
However over the last couple of months my Doctors have taken my blue inhaler off repeat prescription and I now have to go in and order it every time. I asked about it today and the receptionist told me this is happening nationally so they can monitor how much people are using of their inhalers
Is this just me or have any one else's doctors stopped their repeat of their blue inhaler?
I even asked if I booked in for a check up would that reassure them but they said no. My asthma is well controlled and I have not had an attack for years however I do like to order a couple of extra inhalers every now and again to keep in various places e.g home, work, etc (just in case) but this new rule is making this very difficult
Any one else's experience with this would be great
