The National Pregnancy in Diabetes (NPID) audit is part of the National Diabetes Audit (NDA) programme and is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) as part of the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP). The NDA is managed by the NHS Digital in partnership with Diabetes UK and is supported by Public Health England (PHE).
The audit is a measurement system to support improvement in the quality of care for women with diabetes who are pregnant or planning pregnancy and seeks to address the three key questions:
- Were women with diabetes adequately prepared for pregnancy?
- Were adverse maternal outcomes during pregnancy minimised?
- Were adverse fetal/infant outcomes minimised?
This report includes data on women with diabetes with completed pregnancies between 1 January 2016 and 31 December 2016 and where the data was submitted to the audit by 10 February 2017. In 2016, 3,304 pregnancies in 3,297 women with diabetes were recorded in 172 antenatal diabetes services.
