SPIRE - NHS Scotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records. SPIRE is a service that will allow small amounts of information from GP practice records to be used to help doctors’ surgeries, NHS Scotland and the Scottish Government to improve care and plan services, and to help researchers to learn more from patient information held at GP practices. 

Patients across Scotland have been informed of the benefits of the service, and the confidential and secure way in which GP patient records will be used to help plan and improve health care services.

You have a choice about your patient record being used in this way. To find out more go to spire.scot

Spirometry Testing B20-313904.jpg

 

If you have been asked to attend the surgery for a special breathing test known as Spirometry this is usually a 40 minute appointment with one of the specialist nurses.  This will involve breathing into a machine and the results will then be interpreted by your doctor and nurse.

Spirometry Information Sheet

Your appointment will be 40 minutes in duration and to gain the best results from the test it is best to follow the tips below:

  • Wear loose and comfortable clothes
  • Do not smoke for 4 hours prior to the test
  • Do not drink alcohol for 24 hours prior to the test
  • Avoid eating a large meal in the 2 hours prior to the test
  • Vigorous exercise should be avoided in the hour prior to the test
  • It is a good idea to arrive at least 10 minutes early so that you can sit comfortably for that time
  • It is a good idea to empty your bladder prior to the test
  • If you have an inhaler please do not use it 4 hours prior to the test; if you think this will be a problem, please discuss with a clinician

 

If your symptoms are severe you may not be able to comply with these instructions.  Please let the nurse know at your appointment.

If you have questions or concerns with any of these instructions please contact the Asthma nurse prior to your appointment.
