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