National Paediatric Diabetes Audit Spotlight Reports

Reports | Published: 12 Sep 2019

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.

The National Paediatric Diabetes 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.

These two spotlight reports focus on specific aspects of paediatric diabetes care:

  • support for use of diabetes-related technologies among children and young people with Type 1 diabetes. This report provides evidence of the real improvements in diabetes management offered by use of insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring, while demonstrating huge variation in
    technology-related diabetes outcomes between different clinics
  • workforce and structures within paediatric diabetes units. This report provides an analysis of data submitted by all paediatric diabetes teams in England and Wales about staffing resources, practices around transition to adult diabetes services, and access to specialist diabetes advice
