If your COPD is causing you new problems, you should contact us online to let us know straight away using eConsult. We will review this information by the end of the next working day and arrange a telephone or face-to-face review with a doctor or prescribing nurse as appropriate. You should not wait until your annual review to tell us about any worsening of your COPD.
Equally, if you are having a problem with your medication, or have another query or concern you can contact us in the same way.
In addition, we may recommend that we review your COPD symptoms more frequently, for example because of a recent exacerbation or changes to your medication.
Please note that you should telephone 999 if you have severe difficulty breathing, or if you are gasping for breath or struggling to get words out, choking, or your lips are turning blue.
