• chronic (long-term) respiratory disease, such as severe asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or bronchitis;

• chronic kidney disease at stage 3, 4 or 5;

morbidity and mortality. This does not include, for instance, prisons, young

offender institutions, or university halls of residence.

of an older or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer falls ill.
