In addition to the National reports, the NDA has also produced PCT/LHB profile reports which present key PCT findings from the 2009-2010 audit in all age groups. The data used to produce the reports is extracted from GP practices in your PCT/LHB and is augmented by secondary care outpatient data and Hospital Episode Statistics on diabetes related complications. The data is validated, processed and analysed to measure compliance with the National Service Framework (NSF) for Diabetes and NICE quality standards.
The analysis contained in the PCT/LHB profile report is benchmarked against the national findings and provides time trend analysis, allowing you to compare care and treatment results to findings from the 2008-2009 audit.
For further information and recommended actions for commissioners please refer to the National Diabetes Audit Executive Summary 2009-2010.
