Greener Asthma

From 1st October we are swapping all patients who are currently prescribed one of the older blue inhalers (Ventolin/ Salbutamol) to a greener, equally as effective inhaler called SALAMOL. Salamol contains the same amount of drug, operates in the same mechanism as the older inhalers, but has a far lower carbon footprint. It has a finer spray, so more drug is taken into the lungs. This may feel and taste different to your old inhaler but your asthma control should not be affected. You can find out more about this change below.
