This page contains information and resources developed to help practices participating in the National Asthma and COPD Audit Programme (NACAP) primary care workstream. Information and resources will be updated as necessary or as they become available.
The primary care audit automatically extracts relevant Read and SNOMED codes from general practice computer systems. In order to ensure that all relevant activity is detected a large number of codes are extracted.
To support healthcare professionals and to ensure appropriate clinical activity is recognised and recorded we have developed a key set of codes that we recommend are used to populate consultation templates and should be used by clinical coders within your organisations.
