Asthma

Asthma is a common respiratory disorder among students and here at the Students' Health Service we offer an excellent service to those who already have a diagnosis and also to any student who is worried that they might have asthma.

We have specialist nurses (Nurse Cameron and Nurse Marshall) who can assess students, perform respiratory tests, and arrange prescriptions as guided by national guidelines. You can book an appointment directly with the asthma nurses, or see a doctor first if you prefer.

We recommend an annual review for all people on any inhaled or oral asthma medications. An annual review should be booked with the asthma nurses via reception.

Flu immunisations will be offered to those who are recommended to have them under the national protocol. We will invite you to make an appointment in the autumn if you are due a flu jab.
