The National Diabetes Inpatient Audit (NaDIA) is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) and delivered by NHS Digital, working with Diabetes UK.
The National Diabetes Inpatient Audit is a snapshot audit of diabetes inpatient care. Between 26-30 September 2016, the National Diabetes Inpatient Audit was conducted in hospitals across England and Wales, collecting data on characteristics of the hospital including staffing structures, patient clinical data and patient experience information.
The audit looks at the following areas:
• Did diabetes management minimise the risk of avoidable complications?
• Did harm result from the inpatient stay?
• Was patient experience of the inpatient stay favourable?
• Has the quality of care and patient feedback changed?
The Annual Report provides a summary of the 2016 audit findings for England and Wales, and where possible compares to the 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015 audit findings. There was no audit collection or report in 2014, so 2014 data is not available. The audit is supported by the Hospital Level Analysis, which provides results at individual site level.
This publication has changed in terms of structure from previous years in that the main report is now available in PowerPoint and PDF format. Each individual section/chapter of the report is also available as separate standalone PDF/PowerPoint documents in the Short Reports zip folder below.
