DS1 has a new aerochamber, moved from one with mask to one without. Was given 1 but he has 3 asthma bags, one at school, one at childminders and one at home.

Didn't want to ask for 3, so can you buy them?

Yes you can but they are expensive - just ask our doctor for a repeat prescription.

Ask for 3.

DS has 3 volumatic spacers and two aerochamber spacers each with an inahler with it so we can always get to it

Wasn't sure if it was cheeky to get 3. Will pop a note in.

IMO not cheeky at all - just explain that you have to LEAVE a set with school and childminder.

Lol just re-read my previous post. As I'm sure OUR doctor outs be happy to supply I think it's probably better you approach YOUR doctor! Oh the joys of iPads and predictive texts !!!!

We have 4 aerochambers (1 for home, 2 for school - medical room and classroom and 1 for after-school club run separate from school). Dr had no problem writing prescription for them. They cost about £10 each off prescription as I did ask in Boots once.
