At least you received something from your GP. Mine is being silent. Not even any info on their website. Its all very confusing.
I'm on 100/6 2 puffs twice a day up to 4 puffs twice a day. I usually have 3 twice a day. And I have prednisilone (had more than 2 course in the past 12 months) and usually end up on antibiotics too. And nothing. No contact whatsoever.
Im on fostair 200/6 2 puffs twice a day ,spiriva respirant which contains Tiotropium 2.5mg 2 puffs once a day Montelukast plus theophyllyn which are on the list but not recieved a letter yet.Post in area is a bit hit and miss at the moment so if you think you should be on the list to shield just do it anyway,thats what im doing
According to the Asthma UK -
If being used as part of a MART regime
Fostair pMDI or NEXThaler100/6 one puff twice a day + 1 additional puff when necessary (if using at least 5 puffs each day on average)
Fostair pMDI or NEXThaler200/6 two puffs twice a day
You like me should get the text /letter but I haven't got yet.
They are not coming from GP's but NHS England
I am currently doing as Gov advises (I am an informal carer and need to shop) bit otherwise staying in HOWEVER based on the Asthma UK information I think will get a self isolation letter just haven't yet. Note it does say give till Sunday to see if get a letter and if not by then contact GP.
I know. I also have prednisilone - not all the time but when I get a chest infection. I have it as a repeat on my prescriptions. I've certainly had more than two courses in the past 12 months. And of course antibiotics. I was strongly advised to have flu jab (I have that anyway religiously) and was advised to get pneumonia jab though GP service didn't bother to organise it.
This isn't taking into account respiratory history either. 2017 a "minor cold" turned into a year long bacterial infection with 3 A&E visits. If there is a cold around, I get it. Every time and it goes straight to my chest. Last one I had was Dec and Jan.
