National COPD Audit Programme: Primary care report 2017
Published: 14 Dec 2017
This report presents national and health board data from the second cycle of the National Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Audit Programme’s Welsh primary care audit, which were extracted in June 2017 to capture activity between April 2015 and March 2017. Cluster results are available in the health board reports, which are available at www.rcplondon.ac.uk/planningeverybreath. Primary care providers can access their data via the NHS Wales Primary Care Information Portal.
In the first audit cycle (2014-15), data to answer 29 queries were extracted from GP systems. Feedback from stakeholders and learning from that work resulted in a reduction (via clinical and stakeholder consensus) to 14 queries for this extraction, with an increased focus on queries that directly relate to opportunities for improving quality.1 We have also specifically focused (in section 5) on diagnostic and care issues through a lens of equity and parity, and we would recommend further analysis at a local level where disparities are identified.
