Free Covid-19 asthma health packs are available for sufferers in Mayo.
These packs contain information and support to help people stay safe. The Asthma Society of Ireland has partnered with Careplus Pharmacy to supply the packs. They are available in two Mayo pharmacies — Kilroy’s CarePlus Pharmacy in Ballina, and Westport-based McVann’s CarePlus Pharmacy.
The resources within these packs were put together with the assistance of members of the Asthma Society’s Medical Advisory Group, and they draw on expertise from the HSE and the National Respiratory Clinical Programme. These packs consist of patient education materials on asthma or COPD and Covid-19, as well as information on managing asthma in children, general asthma management, dealing with an asthma attack, allergic rhinitis (hayfever), gardening with asthma, asthma and pregnancy and details of key services offered.
