National Diabetes Audit guidance notes for Integrated Specialist Survey

The survey should be completed for your specialist diabetes services across your trust as at 1 October 2023.

Notes to read before completing the survey

Audit lead or key contact

You should receive your log-in details for the Strategic Data Collection Service (SDCS) platform before the start of the submission period. If you do not receive these, then please email [email protected].

If you need to change the key contact at any point during the collection you must also contact [email protected].

The Integrated Specialist Survey can start to be completed as soon as you have downloaded it from the SDCS system.

Find guidance on the collection portal.

Once you are logged on, you can download the Excel form template, complete your sections and circulate to colleagues to help with completion.

All staff

You need to provide your answers in the response boxes next to the questions relevant to your team/service.

Not every question has help notes. We have only provided these where we felt these are needed. If you need further guidance, please get in touch at [email protected]

Remember to save the form to your computer after completing any questions and before sharing it with other colleagues to complete their sections.

We recommend the form is returned to the audit lead to co-ordinate and submit the completed form via the SDCS system within one week of the submission deadline.

The SDCS Collections team will assist you with your submission if the form does not pass all the validation checks upon file upload onto the SDCS portal.  

All forms need to be returned by 10 November 2023. If you have any questions about the National Diabetes Audit Integrated Specialist Survey, please contact us at 0300 303 5678 or [email protected].

For more information on the audits, you can view the National Diabetes Audit website.
