NATIONAL DIABETES AUDIT 2015/16

 

Springhead Medical Centre is taking part in the National Diabetes Audit (NDA).

 

The NDA is used to assess the quality of diabetes care and plan for the future.

 

The NDA is co-ordinated by an organisation called NHS Digital.

 

The NDA collects information on:

  • how many people with diabetes are registered with the GP practice or diabetes clinic
  • whether people with diabetes are receiving the annual healthcare checks
  • whether each person who has had these checks has achieved the targets for glucose control, blood pressure and cholesterol
  • the numbers of people with diabetes who develop complications, such as heart disease, stroke and kidney disease and whether people with diabetes have an increased risk of premature death
  • how many people use an insulin pump, the reason why they use a pump and how long they have been using a pump.

 

The information collected will include your NHS number and date of birth. 


NHS Digital will use your NHS number and date of birth to link information that is collected from your GP practice or diabetes clinic to other information recorded by the NHS relating to your diabetes. Once your information has been linked, your NHS number and date of birth will be removed, so all your information will then be anonymous.

 

The information that is collected by the NDA project will be included in a report, which will be published on the NDA project website. Information that we publish or share will never identify a particular person.

 

If you do not wish for your data to be included please let us know.

There is also a patient information leaflet available "here"
