Don't worry all phone call requests are auto generated. Just ignore if you do not want it. Talking through text chat is just fine with me.

In your case I would advise you to call out of hours GP now and get replacement quickly

Otherwise the only quickest way to get replacement inhaler would be to go to A&E straight away
