‘Rescue packs’ for patients with respiratory conditions

⚠️We have been made aware of some inaccurate information circulating regarding special ‘rescue packs’ for patients with pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). There is no recommended change to usual treatment for your condition.

Please do not contact your GP practice for a rescue pack. You should continue to manage your condition in the usual way and if you feel you have symptoms of COVID-19 (coronavirus), please check online at nhs.uk
