We have been made aware of some inaccurate information circulating regarding special ‘rescue packs’ for patients with pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).


Please do not contact your GP practice for a rescue pack. You should continue to manage your condition in the usual way and if you feel you have symptoms of COVID-19, go to https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 before doing anything else.


Please read this helpful information from the British Lung Foundation

You will note that there is no recommendation to have a rescue pack as there is no evidence for their use and indeed their are concerns steroid will reduce your immunity to fight off this virus.
