East Midlands Respiratory Programme

The East Midlands region covers 300 square miles, and serves a population of round 4.8 million people.  We currently have 9 acute hospital trusts, 19 CCGs, and over GP 600 practices.

Within the East Midlands, respiratory continues to be one of the highest average cost per item, of around £15 per item.  Respiratory accounts for approx. 7% of items prescribed, and 13% of total prescribing cost.

Like many other regions, our aims are to reduce unwarranted variation that we know exists, improve patient outcomes and quality of life for those living with a respiratory condition, and work collaboratively to deliver these aims and reduce costs.
