Paediatric diabetes – Report on care and outcomes 2021/22 (NPDA)

Reports | Published: 09 Mar 2023

The National Paediatric Diabetes Audit (NPDA) has published its report on care and outcomes 2021/22. Based on data from 33,251 children and young people receiving care from a PDU in 2021/22 in England and Wales, it found that the increase in incidence of Type 1 diabetes observed in the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic was followed by a continuing increase in the numbers newly diagnosed with the condition in 2021/22. Other key findings include:

  • Almost all of those with Type 2 diabetes were overweight or obese, and almost half had a diastolic or systolic blood pressure in the hypertensive range
  • Despite reductions in the percentages recorded as requiring additional support between 2020/21 and 2021/22, over a third of children and young people were assessed as requiring additional psychological support outside of multidisciplinary meetings
  • Inequalities persist in terms of the use of diabetes related technologies in relation to ethnicity and deprivation.

This report also contains a number of recommendations relating to staffing, care, health checks and more.
