Programme overview

Diabetes is a chronic condition affecting over two million people in England and Wales. It is caused by an inability to use or produce the hormone insulin and leads to a rise in blood glucose.

This clinical audit aims to improve the care, outcomes and experiences of children and young people with all types of diabetes treated within NHS Paediatric Diabetes Units (PDU) until the age of 24 years.

Additional information on all HQIP-commissioned projects is available on the NHS Trusts page, which includes the recommendations repository, infographics compendium, 9 month publication schedule, impact report, and National Clinical Audit and Enquiries Directory.
