Our colleagues in Public Health are predicting a surge in the number of people who will get pneumonia over the winter period. It is important  that if you have COPD that you ensure you have sufficient supply of inhalers and your other medication (including your rescue pack of antibiotics and steroids) and that you try and avoid mixing with people who already have coughs and colds over this time. Can we also take this opportunity to remind you to ensure you have had your flu vaccine this year and that you have had your pneumococcal vaccine in the past. Finally if you are still smoking we would encourage you to consider stopping to help your chest, discuss this at the surgery when you next attend.

For those who don't have COPD please contact us if you have a cough and fever that seems worse than usual, particularly if you are getting short of breath.
