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.

SEND Resources - Local Offer

CALDERDALE LOCAL OFFER

The Local Offer is essentially a directory of services for children and young people with SEND. In Calderdale, this is delivered primarily through the newly created Local Offer website - click link below:

Calderdale Local Offer Website 

There is also a Calderdale Local Offer Facebook page click link below:

Facebook Page 

The website and the Facebook page are updated on an ongoing basis, with details of upcoming events and additional resources/information being added all the time. It really is a very useful database for any parent with a child with SEN, about services and provision which may be available for their child.
Most information about Health services in Calderdale is found in the ‘Health and Social Care’ section of the Local Offer website.


Many parents of children with SEND and young people with SEND tell us that they have never heard of the Local Offer. We are working hard to increase awareness of this valuable resource, but we need help from Health colleagues to achieve this.
