In addition to the National reports, the NDA has also produced secondary care profile reports which present key findings from the 2012-2013 audit for all age groups specific to individual units. The data used to produce the reports is submitted by secondary care units. The submitted 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 secondary care profile report is benchmarked against the overall national secondary care findings and, for units who submitted data for the previous year provides time trend analysis, allowing you to compare care and treatment results to findings from the 2011-2012 audit.


For further information and recommended actions for commissioners please refer to the National Diabetes Audit 2012-2013 Report 1: Care Processes and Treatment Targets


An issue has been identified with approximately 17,000 records out of 2 million submitted nationally to the 2012-2013 National Diabetes Audit which equates to less than 1% of the total submitted overall.  It has been found that through an error in the data loading process these records were not included in the final analysis. The technical reason relates to an error in how the records extracted from the GP systems were transformed into the data used for analysis.


Initial investigations have confirmed that the National Publication is not materially affected. In some sub-national reports the care process and treatment target percentages are likely to be affected along with participation and those CCGs where we are aware of any substantial changes to the published data will be contacted directly.


We are still investigating exactly what impact including these records will have on the relevant sub-national reports it is therefore recommended that users use sub-national figures with caution until the revised figures are available.  We expect to re publish corrected sub national data in July 2015. The HSCIC apologises for any inconvenience caused.
