Advice for Vulnerable Patients
Let’s see what we can do…
In the Long Term Health Conditions clinic the specialist nurse, Julie Barnes, monitors patients who have asthma, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) or episodes of recurring wheeze. The aim is to provide the most appropriate treatment to relieve and prevent symptoms. We recommend that patients with asthma and COPD are seen at least once a year at the clinic.
If appropriate, we will send written invitations to patients to attend an annual check-up.
If you have asthma, or you’re a parent of a child with asthma, we offer expert advice.
Asthma UK also runs a 12 week support programme which gives you free, personalised asthma support and advice. Based on guidance provided in the NHS, this programme is designed to help you better understand your asthma, and how it affects you.

Change 4 Life
By the time we reach middle age, the majority of us could do with losing at least a bit of weight. Being overweight isn’t just about the way we look. It can lead to more aches and pains, problems sleeping and people report a loss of energy and confidence. It also increases our chances of getting heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. Middle age comes to everyone – ‘middle aged spread’ doesn’t have to. You’ve taken the first step towards getting yourself or your kids eating well, moving more and living longer just by being here – so welcome to Change4Life!
