Liver Diseases

Volume 470: debated on Thursday 17 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (a) males and (b) females in each age group had (i) coronary artery disease and (ii) liver cancer in (A) Southend, (B) Essex and (C) England and Wales in each of the last 10 years. (177141)

The Department is not able to provide prevalence data on coronary artery disease in the form requested. However, the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) dataset does provide the number of patients with coronary artery disease (termed coronary heart disease (CHD) in the QOF). This dataset does not separate men and women and does not hold data on the age of the patients. The data are available only from the financial year 2004-05. Only practices in England who participate in QOF are included. The number of patients is shown in the following table.

The Office for National Statistics have provided data for liver cancer in the following tables.
