I'm very concerned about a policy shift within my medical practice which I'm told is actually government driven. I'm asthmatic and have been since childhood, it's no big deal, I manage it pretty well but during the course of my day I invariable need to use my Ventolin inhaler. There's triggers I try to avoid but on balance I generally need one Ventolin inhaler per month through the repeat prescription scheme.
My medical practice have just decided to reduce my ventolin repeat prescription to one inhaler every other month, I'm running out, I've contacted the medical practice but they're asking do I really need another inhaler and is it essential. I'm 73 years old and I'm now having to beg for medication, I'm very worried about the future.
