Respiratory disease affects one in five people and is the third biggest cause of death in England. 

This profile (previously known as INHALE (the INteractive Health Atlas of Lung conditions in England)) is an online tool showing data from a range of sources about respiratory diseases, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma.

This profile includes data from:

  • the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF)
  • Hospital Episode Statistics (HES)
  • the Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF)
  • the Office of National Statistics (ONS) mortality

Data is mostly for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) or Sub ICBs and follows these domains:

  • COPD indicators
  • asthma indicators
  • pneumonia indicators
  • other respiratory diseases
  • risk factors

The profile follows indicators developed for the ‘2nd Atlas of variation in risk factors and healthcare for respiratory disease in England'. You can access the full Atlas, including a PDF version and the datafile.
