Notes:

1. The NHS Information Centre have provided the number of finished consultant episodes and finished admission episodes for diseases of the respiratory system (ICD-10 J00 to J99). The data has been presented for England, and broken down by hospital provider for the years 2003-04 to 2007-08. From the term 'respiratory complaints' the NHS Information Centre are unable to provide a definitive list of respiratory conditions without specification of the conditions required. Clinical input would be required to confirm that the condition was a 'respiratory complaint'. The data provided is for 'diseases of the respiratory system'. As a result the figures provided may provide an under count of episodes and admissions.

2.The NHS Information Centre are unable to provide data at individual hospital level and have therefore used the appropriate hospital providers of the requested hospitals:

Ashford and St. Peter's Hospital NHS Trust - which includes Ashford Hospital

Ealing Hospital NHS Trust - which includes Ealing Hospital

The Hillingdon Hospital NHS Trust - which includes Hillingdon Hospital

West Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust - which includes West Middlesex University Hospital

Richmond and Twickenham PCT - which includes Teddington Memorial Hospital.

3. There is a shortfall of data for West Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust in 2006. Six months of the year were effected by an error when submitting data.
