In our attempts to be more environmentally friendly, we are encouraging our patients with asthma to switch their current inhalers to the eco-friendlier options down below:
If you are NOT currently using one of these inhalers and would like to make the switch, please contact us and we will be able to change your prescription for you.
Some commonly used inhalers we use in the UK release high amounts of carbon into the atmosphere, which contributes to global warming. Certain brands of inhaler are worse for the environment than others, even though they give exactly the same amount of medicine per dose.
We recommend watching the documentary David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet which is available on Netflix.
