National Diabetes Foot care Audit (NDFA)

  • The NDFA 2014-2017 report, published in March 2018, collected data on 19,453 people with acute diabetic foot ulcers. The findings are reported at national, commissioner, provider and network level.
  • A new Hospital Admission Report 2014-16  was published in October 2017. Patients in the NDFA have been linked to hospital admissions data in England and Wales, allowing analysis of hospital inpatient activity during the six months following first expert assessment by the specialist foot care service. The report includes: all hospital admissions, foot disease admissions, length of stay, revascularisation and amputation.
  • As the NDFA is a continuous data collection, services can commence participation at any time. All services that treat diabetic foot ulcers are expected to participate in the NDFA and participating services should attempt to record data on all new referrals to their service.
