Overview of the audit
Nearly two-thirds of adults in England are living with overweight or obesity. A third of children leaving primary school are living with overweight or obesity.
Obesity is a serious health concern that increases the risk of many other health conditions, including Type 2 Diabetes, cardiovascular disease, joint problems, mental health problems, and some cancers.
NHS England and Improvement have established the National Obesity Audit (NOA) as part of the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme.
NOA will bring together comparable data from the different types of adult and children’s weight management services across England in order to drive improvement for the benefit of those living with overweight and obesity.
