Good afternoon,

The Welsh Government are urging patients with asthma to talk to their GP to see how to manage their condition.

This comes as a report from Asthma UK Cymru that outlines a third of people with the condition in Wales are missing out on essential checks to find out if they are on the right medication or to see if they can use their inhalers properly.

“Our recently launched plan to tackle respiratory illness includes the requirement for all asthma patients to have personalized self-management plans and receive their key annual checks. Patients have a key role to play in this and we would encourage them to talk to their GP about what they can do together to manage their condition more effectively.”
– Welsh Government Spokesperson.

So, if you do suffer from asthma then go to your GP for the sake of your health.
