If you are having an asthma attack right now, or you can’t breathe normally and your reliever inhaler (usually blue) isn’t helping, call 999 for an ambulance. If you are having other difficulties with your asthma, please contact your GP. You can also call NHS Direct on 111 (for England and Scotland), or 0845 46 47 (in Wales).
