Asthma clinics are run by Sister Becky Wych and Liz Holmes.
We are always happy to review anyone with asthma every year and more frequently if your asthma is not well controlled. If you have any of the following then please consider coming to our clinic, as your asthma treatment may need reviewing:
- Cough at night.
- Shortness of breath at work/school or when exercising.
- Persistent Cough, wheeze, tightness, or shortness of breath during the day.
If you need to use your Salbutamol (blue) inhaler more than 3 or 4 times a week it may imply your asthma is poorly controlled.
If you need further advice or information then please feel free to book an appointment at the clinic.
For further information on asthma please visit the Asthma UK website.
Did you know you can recycle your old inhalers?
Complete the Cycle is a scheme organised by GlaxoSmithKline to recover and recycle old inhalers https://uk.gsk.com/en-gb/responsibility/our-planet/complete-the-cycle
Why recycle inhalers?
Inhalers contain powerful greenhouse gases.
Disposing of inhalers in landfill risks releasing any leftover gases into the environment
The plastic and aluminium casing is also wasted
By recycling inhalers, this waste and gas emissions can be prevented
Complete the Cycle was set up in the UK in 2011. By the end of 2017, over 1.2 million inhalers have been recycled and recovered. This has saved carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to taking 5,199 cars off UK roads
Which inhalers can be recycled?
Metered dose inhalers and dry powder inhalers can be recycled
Where can I recycle my old inhalers?
The Complete the Cycle scheme is available at these chemists:
- Boots, Southgate Centre, 1 Newark Street, Bath BA1 1AT
- Boots, 34-35 Westgate Street, Bath, BA1 1EL

Switching to a dry powder inhaler
A dry powder inhaler has far less impact on the environment, than a gas propelled one. For more information please click here
