Respiratory System

The respiratory system includes the lungs and airways. Colds are a common cause of breathing symptoms, as are allergies. Although many colds and allergies can be treated using over the counter treatments and allowing the symptoms to resolve by themselves, sometimes things keep getting worse and not better.

It is a good idea to speak to a GP if you’re worried about your breathing or allergies and our GPs are able to discuss any respiratory symptoms and concerns you have.

Although in some cases a face to face appointment at one of our GP clinics will be required, much of the time things can be treated and sorted via a digital appointment. Download the app and speak to a GP today.
