Sydenham Group Practice 

  ASTHMA CLINIC

Asthma

The practice runs special asthma clinics to help patients with diagnosis and management of the condition. Patients on our asthma register are part of our call and recall system and are looked-after by our team of doctors and practice nurses 

Through correct diagnosis we recognise asthma and aim to eradicate the symptoms. By careful treatment, the objective is to maintain the best possible long-term airway function and reduce the risk of severe attacks. In children, we are looking to achieve normal growth. We encourage patients to use self-management plans

What is Asthma?

Our team can provide you with a full explanation of asthma and carry out tests to establish a proper diagnosis. There are also many sources of information on asthma - including a wealth of information on-line.
