Hi all, I've had asthma for most of my life (44 years) and in that time had a few really bad episodes. Well, twice now my GP has refused by Ventolin inhaler prescription for not making an asthma review appointment. Okay, I'm a bit rubbish when it comes to making these appointments and I'm a bit rubbish when it comes to using a preventer. But, the first one I went to, a few years ago, I had a nurse who had clearly been on the asthma training course try and show me how to use my inhaler. I've been using one for about 38 years so I recon I've got it sussed So that put me off attending them. Anyway, my point is, do you recon I should stick an NHS complaint in that they withheld my Ventolin prescription. Or am I being a bit petty. I had a really bad experience once when my inhaler had run out and I had a severe attack so it worries me when I don't have one. Thanks
