In July 2011, we published “An Outcomes Strategy for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Asthma”, which set out six high-level objectives for public health, the national health service and social care to tackle COPD and asthma in England. A copy of the strategy has already been placed in the Library.
The Department is working with clinical leads for respiratory disease in each of the strategic health authority areas in England to drive up the quality of preventative, detection, diagnostic, treatment and care services for COPD. The leads are using data to help drive improvements in their areas, including those with a high occurrence of COPD.
