I had a curious experience, and probably a good one. My normal review time is April , once a year, except, of course, whend something is up. However, I was asked to do another one with a pharmacist just the other day. It turns out our surgery group (a big one in York) has decided to do 3-6 monthly medication reviews, and it seems triggered by the overuse of Ventolin./salbutamol/reliever. The person I spoke to, a pharmacist, was new to me (it was a phone call) but she then checks everything off with my favourite local asthma nurse, someone I know who really knows her stuff. I have always had good experiences with her. And the pharmacist didn't quibble with me when I said I am an under user of ventolin, that is often when I could benefit i forget there is ventolin. Many find that hard to take aboard, but if asthma has crept up on you gradually it can happen. I can expect to be contacted again in 3-6 months, I was told.
I got the impression there is a campaign to reduce asthma deaths? Are others also getting this?
