This service is intended to support patients to gain maximal benefit from their prescribed medicines, and is not designed to be a replacement for the annual asthma review in the GP practice. The purpose of the review is to support patients prescribed steroid inhalers to correctly use their inhaler, check how regularly the inhaler is being used and signpost patients to smoking cessation services where relevant.
