Classes
[LOADING CHART 1]

On average, 46% of medicine prescribing in England are on single inhaler triple therapy (SITT) medication.

 

Devices
[LOADING CHART 2]

On average, 31% of medicine prescribing in England are on dry powder inhalers (DPI) devices.

Classes included in device graph: LAMA, ICS/LABA/LAMA, LAMA/LABA, ICS/LABA

Class and Device Data: From GP Practice Prescribing data 2

National average: Calculated for England, Scotland or Wales depending on health economy selection

NB. Certain LAMA products can also be used for Asthma, opportunity is estimated only.

[LOADING CHART 3]

This chart shows how the percentage breakdown of LAMA, LAMA/LABA and ICS/LABA/LAMA therapies in your area compares to your peers to help benchmark therapy prescribing.

NICE COPD treatment guideline recommendations below are for classes of medicines, not specific products - NICE COPD treatment guidelines now include1:

  • NICE guidelines recommend the LAMA/LABA class as first-line maintenance therapy in specific COPD patients1
    • NICE recommends the LAMA/LABA class as first-line maintenance therapy in patients with no asthmatic features/features suggesting steroid responsiveness who remain breathless/have exacerbations despite short-acting bronchodilator therapy.
    • *Patients should have spirometrically confirmed COPD and also have been offered/received treatment for tobacco dependence (if smokers), had optimised non-pharmacological management and received relevant vaccinations.
    • LAMA/LABAs are indicated (or can use ‘licensed’) as maintenance bronchodilator treatments to relieve symptoms in adult patients with COPD.
  • Single inhaler triple therapy (SITT) as an option where ICS+LABA+LAMA is required. NICE also recommends minimising the number of inhalers and the number of different types of inhaler used by each person as far as possible1
Devices
[LOADING CHART 4]

This chart shows how the percentage breakdown of MDI, DPI and FMI inhalers in your area compares to your peers to help benchmark device prescribing.

Classes included in device graph: LAMA, ICS/LABA/LAMA, LAMA/LABA, ICS/LABA

Class and Device Data: From GP Practice Prescribing data 2

National average: Calculated for England, Scotland or Wales depending on health economy selection

Peer health economy selection: Selection of peers based on those peer health economies with lowest percentage of LAMA vs LABA/LAMA & ICS/LABA/LAMA

NB. Certain LAMA products can also be used for Asthma, opportunity is estimated only.

Practice prescribing data processing:

  • Processing: GP practice prescribing data2 presented in this model has undergone a process of standardisation to ensure that as accurate as possible comparisons can be drawn. For example, raw GP practice prescribing data presents some inhaler quantities as '1' which is equivalent to 1 month of treatment typically, but others (e.g. in the instance of inhalers which take capsules) as '30'. Every effort is made to present the data as it is published by the publisher. Due to the workload involved in performing this standardisation, not all classes of medicine within the respiratory market have been standardised and therefore not all are shown
  • Update: data is updated on a monthly basis 

Management of data across NHS geographies:

  • A geographical hierarchy is built and maintained by GSK based on data published by the NHS. This hierarchy matches prescribers to health economies and allows the model to amalgamate practice level data up to health economy level (either an individual health economy or any combination of health economies)
  • Please note we make all reasonable effort to ensure data are as per the latest published information by the respective NHS organisations. Therefore where, for example, a new practice has been opened, unless this has been updated by the NHS data will not be included for this practice

For illustrative purposes only

GSK makes no representation or warranty as to the suitability of the output of the model for any particular purpose.
