Asthma Bureaucracy Grumble

I'd love to reduce the burden on pressured NHS services by not having to book appointments for asthma checkups.  Can I not be trusted to contact the surgery if I am actually ill, rather than just needing a repeat prescription?  I'm healthy. I have strangely huge lungs actually, which I put down to much early clarinet-playing and underwater swimming. I can swim underwater for ages.  If I ever end up in one of those movies where one has to urgently swim through an underwater tunnel, I am quids in.

 I just have a minor condition that occasionally causes my lungs to occasionally curl up and go DON'T WANNA!!. I know asthma can be major and life-threatening, but mine isn't, it's just annoying.  I really wish I could just buy inhalers from a pharmacist.   Oddly, I can buy treatment for the eczema that made me really proper ill a year or so ago, over the counter, and I can buy antihistamines for the hayfever that sometimes triggers the asthma.  But not an inhaler to zap the little bugger with once it's rolled onto the scene.
