At Nidderdale Group Practice we have nurse-led clinics for patients with Asthma and COPD.
The clinics provide an opportunity to help improve the management of your condition.
At the clinic the nurse will be able to try and answer any questions you may have about your asthma or COPD. They will be able to teach you the correct way to use your inhaler and find an inhaler which suits you best. They will help you take control of your condition, advising you on self management and what to do if you become more unwell.
In order to diagnose and monitor these breathing condtions in the clinic, the nurses may ask you to do some special blowing tests called “Spirometry”.
