National Paediatric Diabetes Audit Report 2015-2016
Published: 28 Feb 2017
The NPDA is an analysis of data provided by healthcare professionals working in PDUs that are defined as clinics, hospital wards, hospital departments and any other hospital unit diagnosing and treating children and young people with diabetes mellitus in England and Wales.
This 2015/16 report covers the health checks (care processes) and outcomes for children and young people with diabetes who have attended PDUs during the period from 1st April 2015 through to 31st March 2016. Whilst it is important to acknowledge improvements in diabetes care made during this period, this audit also aims to highlight deficiencies in care and make specific recommendations to commissioners of health services, regional diabetes networks, and PDUs to address the quality of recording of data relating to patient care and outcomes and the clear inequalities in outcomes across England and Wales.
