Hey I'm in the same boat here in London I'm taking seretide 250 mg 2 puffs twice a day and montelukast tablet and I too have had no text or letter and I can see my medication name on the list and I get the flu jab each year so just don't know where I stand too

I agree with both the posts above, there has been no information sent out to Asthma or COPD sufferers in Scotland. I also have the flu jab and pneumonia one as well and have had a really bad Asthma attack when I was rushed to hospital. It is a bit worrying that our GPs have not given us guidance as to the best way forward.

Hello members, have you of you been in touch with your GPs or had any information about your asthma? Does anyone have suggestions?

It's take your inhalers as prescribed by your GP and don't stop them, if you feel any changes phone your GP or you feel your having an attack call 999. This is what I was advised to do.
