The National Diabetes Audit (NDA) is the largest annual clinical audit in the world, integrating data from both primary and secondary care sources.
We have produced a local report to summarise the NDA findings for Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group for 2014-15 & 2015-16 which you can find in our document library. The report focusses on CCG Locality level data on overall participation rates, demography, care process completion, percentages offered/attending a structured education programme and treatment target achievement.
The NDA aims to answer four key questions:
- Is everyone with diabetes diagnosed and recorded on a practice diabetes register?
- What percentage of people registered with diabetes received the nine NICE key processes of diabetes care?
- What percentage of people registered with diabetes achieved NICE defined treatment targets for glucose control, blood pressure and blood cholesterol?
- For people with registered diabetes, what are the rates of acute and long term complications (disease outcomes)?
It aims to improve the quality of patient care by enabling NHS organisations to compare outcomes of care, identifying and sharing best practice to drive service improvement.
Public Health England’s interactive Diabetes Profiles cover a broad range of key indicators by CCG, GP and LA, including prevalence and demographic risk factors, as well as care processes, treatments targets and complications measures from the National Diabetes Audit.
Diabetes prevalence data are included in the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF). Local QOF analyses make data available by general practice, locality, neighbourhood team, CCG, local authority and deprivation grouping.
Dedicated Data Supplements were produced for Diabetes as part of the Long Term Conditions Joint Strategic Needs Assessment in 2015. You can find these supplements, alongside the full JSNA within our document library.
