What month has the largest rise in asthma emergency admissions?

Category : Tableau

My daughter suffers from asthma, and this time of the year seems to lead to her having an attack and then spending time in hospital. By the number of children also in hospital with her with the same symptoms, it clearly can be a busy time for asthma admissions. What I didn’t realise was how much of a spike there is in the data for September coinciding with the start of the school term.

My colourful, using the purple used by Asthma UK, but simple viz, rescues the data from the rather dull spreadsheets and press releases to highlight September’s spike, as well as a profile those who are admitted.
