From this year a school principal can write a request letter to the pharmacy and purchase an asthma emergency inhaler by themselves (stating they are the principal of their school) or write a letter giving authority to one of the school staff to pick up.
Tips on how to get new inhalers for your asthma/first aid kit:
- Write a letter to your local pharmacy on the school letterhead
- Describe what you need an emergency asthma inhaler for asthma/first aid kit for your school
- The letter should be signed by a principal
- A principal or a school staff member with a letter giving authority can purchase an emergency asthma inhaler from a local pharmacy
