Overview of the collection

NHS England has directed NHS Digital to establish and operate a system for the collection and analysis of the National Diabetes Audit (NDA) including the National Diabetes Audit Core Audit, which is part of the NDA programme of clinical audits.

People with diabetes should receive annual care checks each year and should be achieving a target for their blood glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure values; these annual checks and targets are outlined in the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Clinical Guidelines and Quality Standards.

The main national diabetes audit, known as the Core Audit, collects information from general practices and specialist diabetes out-patient services to look at whether people with diabetes are receiving their annual care checks, are achieving their treatment targets and looks at their health outcomes along with whether they have been offered and attended structured education.
The key Audit findings are published in a national report as well as in general practice, Clinical Commissioning Group and specialist diabetes out-patient service level reports.

Scope of the collection

General practices and specialist services in England.

Legal basis for provision of data

section 259 of the Health and Social Care Act
