RESCUE MEDICATION HOAX/ REPEAT PRESCRIPTION UPDATE
There are currently several misinforming posts on Social Media regarding Rescue Packs/Rescue Packs for Children' Please do not ask your GP for ‘rescue medication ‘ if you do not usually have standby medication for your respiratory condition.
You may treat yourself thinking it’s your asthma when you may need medical advice.
The medication that sits in your home may be needed elsewhere and not be available to someone whose life they can save.
Please do not stockpile inhalers. If you haven’t needed one for many years please don’t ask for one now.
Help your GP to help you.
Be patient with your pharmacists, they are doing the best they can.
