The National Diabetes Audit (NDA) continues to provide a comprehensive view of Diabetes Care in England and Wales and measures the effectiveness of diabetes healthcare against NICE Clinical Guidelines and NICE Quality Standards. In July 2008 NICE published guidance for the continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. For the first time in 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 the National Diabetes Audit collected information on the number of people on insulin pump therapy in England.
This collection was a feasibility study to see whether information could be collected on the number and characteristics of people with diabetes using an insulin pump, the reason for going on an insulin pump and the outcomes achieved since starting insulin pump treatment. This National report presents the findings from the feasibility study and details recommendations for the future of the Insulin Pump Audit and also for Specialist Services that participate in the National Diabetes Audit.
The main report contains information on the national key findings and recommendations for England. Supplementary data is also contained in the excel spreadsheets. There are 2 excel spreadsheets; one spreadsheet contains the tables and charts in the report, the other is an interactive excel spreadsheet. Users can select a hospital of choice and the information for the chosen hospital is then displayed in tables and charts.
UPDATE JULY 2016 - It has been discovered that data from some hospitals was not included in the original publication of this report. This has been corrected and the publication has been updated to include this data. The key findings and recommendations from the report remain the same. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
