Introduction

INHALE is an online tool showing data from a range of sources about respiratory diseases including COPD and asthma. It includes data from the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF), Hospital Episode Statistics (HES), the Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) and ONS mortality. Data is mostly presented for CCGs and is divided into domains:

  • Risk factors
  • COPD indicators
  • Asthma indicators
  • Pneumonia indicators
  • Other

The Inhale profile is based on indicators developed for the 2nd Atlas of variation in risk factors and healthcare for respiratory disease in England. A full list of indicators in Inhale is available here.

The full Atlas PDF and datafile is available from https://fingertips.phe.org.uk/profile/atlas-of-variation. Please provide feedback on the atlases of variation by completing a short online survey Atlas user survey

For respiratory information at general practice level please see National General Practice Profiles.

The Inhale profile is currently being updated and will be populated with the indicators from the Atlas during 2020.
