Dear NEEDHAM, Louisa - Workforce & OD,

I am not looking at specific diagnoses other than separating asthma from all other conditions if possible.
I am just trying to compare respiratory related admissions to air quality in Northampton to see if there is any correlation.
A break down of age groups within the asthma category particularly would also be helpful as childhood asthma is on the rise.

Yours sincerely,

Martin Sawyer

Dear NEEDHAM, Louisa - Workforce & OD,

I am primarily interested in admissions related to all conditions (as
primary diagnosis) listed in the respiratory chapter of the ICD-10
(International Classification of Diseases - 10). If an age breakdown is available this would be helpful.

Secondary information relating to Asthma as the primary diagnosis, with an age breakdown if possible, would also be helpful.

Yours sincerely,

Martin Sawyer
