Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the name for a collection of lung diseases (such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema). People with COPD have difficulties breathing, coughs, and are prone to chest infections due to the narrowing of their airways.

The figure shows that the QOF prevalence of COPD for most of the GP surgeries in NHS Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG is smaller than the modelled prevalence.
